Kerley's lyrical prose portrait of Whitman captures the remarkable humanity and compassion of this quintessentially American poet, while Selznick's evocative art, inspired by period photographs, breathes visual life into this moving tribute. This memorable account of Whitman's experiences before and during the Civil War is brilliantly supported by the poet's own words, as well as contemporary and later sources.

Ryan's vibrant text melds perfectly with Selznick's sepia toned illustrations to portray Anderson's passion for singing and her perseverance in overcoming the barriers to both train and perform because of her race.
