Hang a Thousand Trees with Ribbons : The Story of Phillis Wheatley
Kidnapped from her home in Senegal and sold as a slave in 1761, a young girl is purchased by the wealthy Wheatley family in Boston. Phillis Wheatley--as she comes to be known--has an eager mind and it leads her on an unusual path for a slave--she becomes America s first published black poet. Strong characterization and perceptive realism mark this thoughtful portrayal. --"Booklist""
