Description - The Good Lord Bird (tv Tie-in) by James McBride
The National Book Award-winning modern classic from James McBride, the tragic, funny story of a boy who joins John Brown's antislavery crusade - and passes as a girl to survive.
The tie-in edition to Showtime's eight-part TV series starring Ethan Hawke and Daveed Diggs, which premieres in spring 2020.
Henry Shackleford is a young slave living in the Kansas Territory in 1856--a battleground between anti- and pro-slavery forces--when legendary abolitionist John Brown arrives. When an argument between Brown and Henry's master turns violent, Henry is forced to leave town--along with Brown, who believes Henry to be a girl and his good luck charm.
Over the ensuing months, Henry, whom Brown nicknames Little Onion, conceals his true identity to stay alive. Eventually Brown sweeps him into the historic raid on Harpers Ferry in 1859--one of the great catalysts for the Civil War. An absorbing mixture of history and imagination, and told with McBride's meticulous eye for detail and character, The Good Lord Bird is both a rousing adventure and a moving exploration of identity and survival.
