Publisher Summary
Newbery Honor book

Barred from his family home-stead by his mean-spirited uncle, eighteen-year-old Chris weathers a Minnesota winter in a small cabin with his grandfather. Poverty and the tempting stories of a wandering Easterner convince Chris to harvest the trees on his grandfather's land and float the logs down the spring floodwaters of the Mississippi to the lumber mills in Saint Louis. Filled with stories of raft hands and river pilots, this fast-paced novel has all the momentum of the great Mississippi.

In 1835, after being turned out by his mean-spirited uncle, Chris Dahlberg decides to harvest some of the timber on his grandfather's land in Minnesota and float the giant logs down the Mississippi River to market in St. Louis.
