Summary Twelve-year-old Charlie O'Leary signs aboard the USS Varuna as it steams its way towards the mouth of the Mississippi River to fight the Confederate Navy. Charlie is short enough, and swift enough, to race through the crowded ship and fetch gunpowder for the big guns on deck. The cannons boom like thunder. Their hot iron shells blast through enemy ships, ripping canvas, wood, and metal. Charlie hopes to find his brother Johnny among the Varuna's fleet. But will their ships survive the awesome battle of New Orleans?
