Description
Living in 1853 Pittsburgh, 13-year-old Owen Burke puts his little brother on an orphan train headed west and sets out to make his own way in life, only to fall in with a different group of misfits on the River Palace, a floating circus headed for the Mississippi. Befriended and given work by Solomon, an elderly former slave, Owen discovers that the circus workers are not freaks; they're loners like him. A brush with yellow fever in New Orleans and a devastating storm threaten the boat and its passengers, but it's the menace of slave catchers that poses the greatest danger of all, in this stirring adventure through a very different America, for readers 9 to 13.
