After his father's death at sea, a fourteen-year-old boy struggles to survive in colonial Maryland, to gain his freedom from the man who buys him, and to rescue his sister who has been sold to another master. This story of slavery and freedom explores the world of English settlers, native peoples, and enslaved Africans who carve out new lives along the edges of the Chesapeake Bay.
