Newbery Medalist Christopher Paul Curtis brings his trademark humor and heart to the story of a boy struggling to do right in the face of history's cruelest evils.

Twelve-year-old Charlie is down on his luck: His dad just died, the share crops are dry, and Cap'n Buck -- the most fearsome man in Possum Moan, South Carolina -- has come to collect a debt.
