“The characters charm, and the material is enhanced by the author's well-realized rendition of time and place.” —Kirkus Reviews

Fans of the hapless Button family will love this Civil War prequel featuring the inimitable “Granddaddy Ike” as a boy. Longing to join in the war effort, young Ike attempts to call on the ingenuity of his fabled (some say cursed) ancestor—the adventuresome Uncle Palmer—seeking passage to Missouri disguised as a drummer boy to meet up with the Iowa First. But some opportunities are meant to be missed. And some arrive when you least expect them.
