Fountas & Pinnell:
In 1619 European traders first brought captured Africans to Virginia to provide the cheap labor that would bring prosperity to the South and tragedy to the nation. Newbery Honor winner Walter Dean Hughes dramatically presents the history of these African Americans and their descendants--including members of his own family. (HarperCollins)
