  • "One day, thirteen-year-old jessie Bollier is earning pennies playing his fife on the docks of New Orleans; the next, he is kidnapped and thrown aboard a slave ship, where his job is to provide music while shackled slaves "dance" to keep their muscles strong and their bodies profitable. As the endless voyage continues, Jessie grows increasingly sickened by the greed, brutality, and inhumanity of the slave trade, but nothing prepares him for the ultimate horror he will witness before his nightmare ends -- a horror that will change his life forever."@en
  • ""In spite of his mother's warnings, 13-year-old Jessie Bollier wanders down to the New Orleans wharf to watch the slave traders unload their cargo. One evening, some sailors step out of the shadows and shanghai Jessie aboard a slave ship bound for Africa. After weeks of travel, the day finally arrives when slaves are loaded onto the ship. Several days later, Jessie discovers the reason for his abduction. The slaves, buried for hours in the cramped and airless hold, need exercise to keep them healthy and more profitable for the auction block. It is Jessie's job to play his fife while the exhausted slaves dance on the deck of the ship"--Container."
