Summary

Life hasn't been easy for 12-year-old Homer and his older brother, Harold, since their mother passed away. They've been living with Uncle Squinton, the meanest man in the entire state of Maine. When Squinton sells Harold into service in the Union Army for a quick profit, Homer decides to take off and track down his brother's regiment.

Once on the road, Homer travels by foot, wagon, train, steamship, hot-air balloon, and a horse named Bob. He encounters scoundrels, scallywags, and spies of every sort. And if his adventures are just too incredible to be believed, well, as Homer would say, "old Truth ain't nearly as useful as a fib sometime."

With humor and just a touch of exaggeration, Homer spins a rousing, page-turning tale filled with historical encounters, daring deeds, and good old-fashioned adventure.
