Set during the time of slavery, this powerful tale--told in the tradition of African-American folklore--centers on a slave named Hezekiah. When his attempt at escape fails, Hezekiah is befriended by a wise old crow who tells him what he must do in order to be free. The intriguing, moving text is highlighted by exceptional, bold full-color woodcut paintings.
