- "Born in 1844 in bucolic upstate New York, Liberty Fish is the son of fervent abolitionists as well as the grandson of Carolina slaveholders even more dedicated to their cause. Thus follows a childhood limned with fugitive slaves moving through hidden passageways in the house, and the inevitable distress that befalls his mother whenever letters arrive from her parents. In hopes of reconciling the familial disunion, Liberty escapes--first into the cauldron of war and then into a bedlam more disturbing still. In a vibrant display of literary achievement, Stephen Wright brings us a Civil War novel unlike any other."--Publisher's website.
Born in 1844 in upstate New York as the child of ardent abolitionists, Liberty Fish finds his life influenced also by his grandparents, Carolina slaveholders, a conflict that he struggles to resolve by enlisting during the Civil War.
