From the introduction: “Exciting story of a young boy’s flight, both funny and hair-raising, down the Mississippi to a precarious haven in Florida Keys, just after the American Civil War. The motley band of villains in pursuit — Ku Klux Klanmen, wicked Indians, ruthless spies and imposters — will delight the reader almost as much as the boy’s extravagant and frequently accidental companions on the journey.”
