But now his parents want him to go to the new log cabin school, where he'll be cooped up inside all day. How will he and Louisa find their way to school and back? How will beansie cope with rough boys such as Oliver Sweeny, who can outrun, outlick, and outholler anybody? In this heartwarming and homespun chapter book set on the central Indiana frontier in the 1820s, a young boy finds his courage and his way.
