Moses, an eleven-year-old slave, understands what slavery means. Massa owns him. He has no control of what he does, or when he does it. A shy, frightened boy, he obsesses about the fact that he and his family are nothing more than property - the same as a mule or a wagon. After his Papa dies, a shocking surprise changes Moses' life forever.
