Description
First young adult novel from acclaimed mystery writer Walter Mosley. Science fiction and African American myth blend with historical reality and stirring emotional detail in a daring and liberating work of powerful fiction. A boy remembers himself as a slave named 47, living in Georgia in 1832. Chained, branded and whipped, he is mentally liberated by Tall John, a runaway who shows him the secrets of the universe and instils the maxim 'neither master nor nigger be' in the child's head, which, ultimately, leads him to freedom.
