The Ballad of Belle Dorcas
In this mesmerizing African-American tale, a beautiful free-issue girl,
Belle Dorcas, seeks out a conjure woman to concoct a spell that will prevent
her husband from being sold and sent away by their master. A "first-rate piece
of storytelling"--(starred review) "Booklist." "The effect of the fluent,
dramatic storytelling is immeasurably enhanced by the striking artwork, which
casts its own spell."-- "The Horn Book."
