Product Description

Thirteen-year-old Jessie Bollier earns pennies on the docks of New Orleans playing his fife. He suddenly finds himself thrown aboard a slave ship when he is kidnapped! His job on the ship is to provide music while shackled slaves "dance" to keep their muscles strong and their bodies profitable. Jessie grows increasingly sickened by the greed, brutality, and inhumanity of the slave trade. But nothing prepares him for the ultimate horror he will witness before his nightmare ends--a horror that will change his life forever. Recommended for ages 11 to 14. The 1974 Newbery Medal winner.
