Review: Drawn from a document listing the price of possessions for an antebellum estate, including slaves, this book paints a portrait, in free verse and pictures, of these persons with price tags. The author's treatment of each listing brings each person to life, revealing their humanity not only through the activities of their day-to-day life, but their hopes and dreams as well.
