The Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. Figg

The Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. Figg

By: Rodman Philbrick

Genre: Historical Fiction

One conflict is when Homer escapes the root cellar on Bob the horse during the night, on the search for Harold. Then he gets kidnapped by two of the most dangerous criminals in Pine swamp.

The climax is when Homer lies to Stink and Smelt about where the slaves are, and is about to get kiilled when they discover that he lied, when Samuel Reed (a conductor on the underground railroad) knocks Stink and Smelt out with a steel rod.

1. One complicating event is when Homer is trapped in the root cellar, he comes up with his plan to run away from Squint and find his brother.

The main idea of the story is that Homer's brother Harold has been illegally sold into the army by their uncle, and Homer has to save his brother beore he gets killed in the war.

3. One complicating event is when Homer finds out that Professer Fleabottom is a spy for the confederates.

I thought this book was ok, not a book that I would keep reading for the fun of it. I would recomend this book who likes historical fiction, or this same author, Rodman Philbrick.

2. One complicating event is when Homer has to decide wether he is going to lie to the kidnappers about where the slaves are hidden, and risk getting killed.

The resolution of this story is when Homer finally finds Harold and he tries to get Harold to run away with him. Harold does not go with him though , he stays and fights.
