The year is 1864 and twelve-year-old Gabriel, a recently freed slave, is making a name for himself throughout the state of Kentucky. Blessed with a competitive spirit and a natural talent for racing horses, Gabriel is burning up the horse track and stacking up wins for horse owner Mister Giles.

When Mister Giles asks him to ride Aristo, a powerful but unpredictable horse in the Saratoga Chase, Gabriel jumps at the chance to compete against some of the greatest jockeys in the North. But horse racing can be a nasty business when the stakes are so high. And Gabriel learns soon enough that being freed is not the same as being free. Not when your skin is black.

Now Gabriel has more on his mind than winning the race. He has to keep his horse safe and fend off trouble. More than ever Gabriel misses his father, who has gone off to fight with the Union Army. Who else can he trust?

In the second book in her historical fiction trilogy set during the Civil War, author Alison Hart continues to explore the complex relationships between black and white, slave and master, and North and South. The result is a gripping story that brings to life the danger and drama of a time when war split the country and human beings were divided into the owner and the owned based on the color of their skin.

Background historical material and photos included.

From the Back Cover:

In 12 poems, Tiller crafts the stories of the countless cats at Grandmother's farm, who hide in the shade under the porch, prowl through the grass, doze in comfortable laps, and vanish as they please into the shadows.
