A wonderfully atmospheric historical novel based on the story of the first African American female poet and a perfect introduction to the subject of slavery. This title is part of Walker Books’ 'New Voices' campaign which throughout 2008 is showcasing some of the brightest new storytelling talents in children’s literature.

Synopsis

Hang A Thousand Trees With Ribbons by Ann Rinaldi

A historical novel based on the story of Phillis Wheatley - the first African American female poet. It presents an intriguing and moving story of a young girl kidnapped from her home in Senegal and sold, in 1761, as a slave to the wealthy Wheatley family of Boston.

Reviews

“Rinaldi makes it clear to readers that Wheatley’s good fortune is a double-edged sword that destroys her. A tragic tale, beautifully written and researched.” Kirkus reviews
