Two downriver journeys, disparate in time but oddly merging in intensity and, finally, in intent. . . Robert Day and his three friends imitate an escaped slave's journey down the Pearl River in Missippi, while Robert translates the slave's diary. As the four learn just how violent Octavius's escape and the price of his freedom was, they realized that the same price is often accorded us.
