Wagoosh has a vision, and follows the signs south. Absalom, an escaped house slave, is running north. When the two meet, the inevitable clash of cultures leads us into little-explored historical territory-and on a strange and desperate flight from Abraham, the plantation owner. Red, black, and white, eventually the men must come to grips with the things that unite them as well as those that divide them. With humour, music, and poetry, Governor-General's Award-winner Ian Ross paints a compelling picture of the complex nature of race relations in 19th-century America.
