Lexile measure:
Ben was determined to look for his brother Reuben on his own, to bring him back from the Union Army before the big battle came. Wherever that was! And now he finds himself trekking through Pennsylvania with a big yellow dog, a pesky little cousin, and an old Jersey cow named Mavis. But dodging rebel soldiers and fording the Susquehanna River in the middle of the night is dangerous work for one boy alone. Together, the motley crew just might make it before the big battle comes and takes Reuben away forever.

Marty Crisp weaves a powerful Civil War novel with an unlikely group of heroes, including the courageous dog, Captain, who kept them alive through it all
