Ever since running away at the age of fourteen, Paul-Edward, the son of a white landowner and a black slave, has had one dream: to own land every bit as good as his daddy's. While growing up, Paul-Edward loved, and feared, his father, but he loved the land unconditionally. Then, after a rash act of youthful rebellion, he leaves his family behind and vows to succeed on his own. However, for anyone black coming of age in 1880s Mississippi, this is no simple goal. From horse racing to lumber camps to outwitting double-crossing businessmen, Paul-Edward will do what it takes to make his dream come true, along the way discovering his own strength, learning the value of friendship and even falling in love.

Touching story, beautifully narrated

It has a clear story line that makes it work very well as an audio book. The story is truly touching: Set in the south after the Civil war, a young man, son of a freed black woman and her former owner, fights hard to understand his situation in life. It is a story of friendship, of struggle, of overcoming adversity.
This is young adult fiction, but it works well for adults too. The story is both extremely sad, tragic, and hopeful.
It was a joy to listen to this book, also because of the quality of voice the narrator brings to it.
