Its 1854, and seventeen-year-old orphan, Pencil, yearns for more control of his life. Viewed as a hobbadehoyone in a state of limbo between boyhood and manhoodby his adult, criminal mentors, hes a field general for a pack of juvenile street rats in Lower Manhattan. Unexpectedly shipped out to Ohio, he finds a divided nation several hundred miles north of the Ohio River. Finding himself is no easy task as farm life may have enlarged his muscles, but it will take another stint in a different city for him to learn to trust before he becomes a man.
