The cover is priceless and speaks beautifully of the story within. An unemployed WW II vet risks his own life to save a twelve-year-old boy from getting hit by a car. In the voice of this young man we view the town of Birdsong, South Carolina circa 1946. We learn the harsh realities of the Jim Crow South through his eyes and hear his voice. As Meriweather becomes a friend, we learn the value of seeing the world through more than one set of eyes. Highly recommended!
