Click for availability and more information The Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. Figg, by W.R. Philbrick
 
After his brother is illegally sold into service during the Civil War, 12 year-old Homer sets off on an adventure to find him, encountering con-artists, thieves and spies. Homer uses his wits and his skill at telling tall tales to make his way from his Uncle's farm in Maine to Gettysburg Pennsylvania. A very funny story that manages to fold history into the tale, including the Underground Railroad and the Battle of Gettysburg. A 2010 Newbery honor recipient.
