Pignat always writes wonderful, heartfelt stories and this is no exception. Written in free verse, its the story of Phoebe, a slave at a plantation in the Carolinas before the Civil War. One day a Canadian physician comes to birdwatch, or so he says. Will Phoebe escape to freedom, or will she be caught and punished? This book is a reaffirmation of human rights and freedoms.
