When Addy finds a little boy floating down the river in a basket, she's surprised. When he calls to the fish to jump out of the river and into Addy's wagon, she's speechless. And when the fish obey, she knows for a fact that life on the Plenty Plantation is about to change! In this original tall tale, Jerdine Nolen has created a hero with the strength of fifty men, a heart as big as all outdoors, and a mysterious gift for spiriting slaves away to freedom.
