Sid does it again! 11 Aug. 2000
By Turnaround365 - Published on
Format: Paperback
Another delightful and funny book, this time about a traveling family, bound for Humbug Mountain to find a rich relative and settle down in peace. This being a Fleischman novel, you can bet there are plenty of twists and turns along the way--and laughs to go with them. Check it out!
Western-themed frontier fun 25 May 2011
By DJ Joe Sixpack - Published on
Format: Hardcover
"Humbug Mountain"
Written by Sid Fleischman
Illustrated by Eric Von Schmidt
This 1978 novel is another fun, frontiers-y epic from author Sid Fleischman, about a traveling family led by a newspaperman father and his stolid wife, who decide to settle down in a new settlement in the high plains which turns out to be a little more rustic than they anticipated: turns out it hasn't even been built yet! Stranded in the middle of nowhere, they are beset upon by bandits, buffalo bones and galloping gold prospectors. The tone is a little rougher than some of his other out-West books, with the menace of violence from creepy badguys Shagnasty John and the sinister, club-wielding Fool Killer. Probably best for tweens, though still leavened with humor like Fleischman's other books... Another enjoyable book, with illustrations from '60s folksinger/artist Eric Von Schmidt... give 'er a spin! (Joe Sixpack, ReadThatAgain children's book reviews)
A great book! 21 Mar. 2014

Format: Kindle Edition
I definitely recommend this book for children. I am a kid myself and found the book to be an excellent way to spend time reading this book. I love the storyline and the way it captivates a poor family like the Flints. Awesome book.
A book I'd probably never, ever find again... 17 April 2012

I was pleased to find a childhood favorite that I could pass on to my 10 year old son. The book although old, was in great condition and arrived very quickly.
