Write The First Customer Review

Working and sleeping in a stable, Pompey Walker dreams of going to school. Born into slavery in the 1830s, the only subjects to learn are the brutalities of plantation life--until slavery-hating Jeremiah Walker, son-in-law of the plantation owner, buys Pompey's freedom. Inspired by a newspaper account of an Ohio man's experiences and recollections of former slaves. Full color.
