BOOK REVIEW:

Excerpts of review by John E. Roper for The US Review of Books:

Nagel’s tale is both entertaining and heart-warming as a discouraged slave boy grows up to become a man both in outlook and in stature. Much of the beauty of Forester’s work is in the layout of the book itself, with its faux-parchment pages and the author’s own illustrations designed to look like ancient mosaics and paintings. But it is the attitude changes seen as Nagel matures that make this engaging coming-of-age story worth reading.
