My great-grandmama’s mama told her and she told me this story about a long time ago . . .
So begins this account of the author’s great-great-grandmother Jane, and how she meets a slave new to the plantation, a slave who would prove to have magical powers . . . created by the wish for freedom. Alice McGill remembers this story, passed down in her family through the generations, from her childhood and how her greatgrandmother told it to her as if unveiling a great, wonderful secret. My siblings and I believed that certain Africans shared this gift of taking to the airway up and over everything.’”

In this retelling of a folktale, five Africans escape the horrors of slavery by simply disappearing into thin air.
