Review:

"Fourteen-year-old Henry is the wry narrator of this comic adventure set in Missouri in 1848. A disarming lie to his older brother...leads the two on an eventful search by riverboat and by mule for their relative." --Starred, School Library Journal

"As Henry asserts in the opening paragraphs, that lie 'carried me five hundred miles and made a lot of things happen.' The eventful journey is seriocomic as it paints a picture of frontier prejudices, yet entertains as well." -- Starred, Booklist

"A picaresque novel in the manner of Mark Twain." -- The Horn Book
