Contents / Notes

Summary, etc.: In 1848 a fourteen-year-old Missourian, although not a habitual liar, tells two lies that start off an unusual chain of events. This Twain-like novel features 14-year-old Henry as the wry narrator who tells of his comic adventures in 1848 Missouri. When a lie to his older brother Charles about their cousin being seen living with an Indian tribe leads them on an eventful search, the journey paints a picture of frontier prejudices with seriocomic overtones.
