    " Typical Sid Fleischman book. Almost as good as "By The Great Hornspoon." As usual, Sid's villains are pretty ornery. Definitely not a book to read to little kids. I'd wait till they're about 10. However, might be useful for teaching American history - Steamboat travel, gold rush, buffalos, etc. "

    " Had fun reading this to my kids. They enjoyed this Midwestern tale of adventure. "
