Title The good lord bird [text (large print)] / James McBride.
Author McBride, James, 1957-
Summary In 1856, Henry Shackleford is a young slave living in the Kansas Territory, a battleground between anti- and pro-slavery forces. When an argument between legendary abolitionist John Brown and Henry's master turns violent, Henry is forced to leave with Brown, who believes he's a girl. Over the ensuing months, Henry -- whom Brown nicknames "Onion" -- conceals his identity to stay alive, eventually finding himself at Harpers Ferry in 1859. (Bestseller)
