Publisher Comments:

When he learns that his pregnant wife has been spirited off to a distant city, William responds as any man might-he drops everything to pursue her. But as a fugitive slave in Antebellum America, he mustrun a terrifying gauntlet, eluding the many who would re-enslave him while learning to trust the few who dare to aid him on his quest.

Among those hunting William is Morrison, a Scot who as a young manfled the miseries of his homeland only to discover even more brutal realities in the New World. Bearing many scars, including the loss of his beloved brother, Morrison tracks William for reasons of his own, a personalagenda rooted in tragic events that have haunted him for decades.

Following up on his award-winning debut, Gabriel's Story, David Anthony Durham presents another rivetingtale, a brilliantly drawn portrait of America before the Civil War, and a provocative meditation on racial identity, freedom and equality.

"From the Trade Paperback edition."
