Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In "the funniest historical novel about the West since "Little Big Man" ("Denver Post), Howard Frank Mosher introduces Private True Teague Kinneson, who sets out with his nephew, Ticonderoga, on an epic race to reach the Pacific before Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. Along the way True and Ti encounter Daniel Boone and his six-foot-two spinster daughter, Flame Danielle; fight and trick a renegade army out to stop Lewis's expedition; invent baseball with the Nez Perce; hold a high-stakes rodeo with Sacagawea's Shoshone relatives; and outwit True's lifelong adversary, the Gentleman from Vermont, a.k.a. the devil himself. Published to coincide with the anniversary of the Lewis and Clark expedition's beginning, "The True Account is a riotous journey that "celebrates the unique brand of homespun humor popularized in the tall tales of Mark Twain" ("Booklist).
