Johnson discovered a dead man’s hand. Slathers had shown us that we could store water in the engine-room boiler ssing downpour. It would beat hauling water an everlasting distance from the river. Ma set out her flowerpots. During the day she turned Mr. Johnson and the chickens loose in the cottonwoods to fend for themselves. It was our job to round them up before nightfall.

He won the Newbery Medal in 1987 for The Whipping Boy and the Boston Globe–Horn Book Award in 1979 for Humbug Mountain.

Humbug Mountain book. Typical Sid Fleischman book. Almost as good as "By The Great Hornspoon. As usual, Sid's villains are pretty ornery. Welcome to Humbug Mountain.

Sid Fleischman's zest for frontier foolishment and humbug is at full steam in this story of an itinerant newspaperman's family .

Sid Fleischman's zest for frontier foolishment and humbug is at full steam in this story of an itinerant newspaperman's family heading for their own six lots in the new city of Sunshine, planned and executed by their steamboat-captain grandfather. But instead of the fancy hotel and opera house pictured on the Sunshine litho, the Flints find only an abandoned riverboat, stranded when the Missouri River jumped its banks, moved over, and made Sunshine a premature ghost town by landing it in the dry state of Nevada where taverns aren't allowed.

Welcome to Humbug Mountain.

The Sid Fleischman Humor Award is given each year in his honor by the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. Boston Globe-Horn Book Award. American Book Awards finalist. The California Young Reader Medal. Silver Medal, Commonwealth Club of California. The Lewis Carroll Shelf Award. The Mark Twain Award (Missouri). Using their newspaper, The Humbug Mountain Hoorah, Wiley and his sister and mother go about outwitting the outlaws in their scheme to ambush Grandfather's new boat and its cargo of gold.

A young boy and his wandering family foil villains and rout nasty varmints as they make a home for themselves in a beached boat on the banks of the Missouri.

I was pleased to find a childhood favorite that I could pass on to my 10 year old son. The book although old, was in great condition and arrived very quickly.

----------------------------------------------------
This 1978 novel is another fun, frontiers-y epic from author Sid Fleischman, about a traveling family led by a newspaperman father and his stolid wife, who decide to settle down in a new settlement in the high plains which turns out to be a little more rustic than they anticipated: turns out it hasn't even been built yet! Stranded in the middle of nowhere, they are beset upon by bandits, buffalo bones and galloping gold prospectors. The tone is a little rougher than some of his other out-West books, with the menace of violence from creepy badguys Shagnasty John and the sinister, club-wielding Fool Killer. Probably best for tweens, though still leavened with humor like Fleischman's other books... Another enjoyable book, with illustrations from '60s folksinger/artist Eric Von Schmidt... give 'er a spin! (Joe Sixpack, ReadThatAgain children's book reviews)

This is worth the read to oneself or to one's kids. Sid is an excellent author and I'm now on a mission to read all of his books.

Side note: this isn't a long book.

I definitely recommend this book for children. I am a kid myself and found the book to be an excellent way to spend time reading this book. I love the storyline and the way it captivates a poor family like the Flints. Awesome book.
