Interweaving the real and the surreal, Charles Johnson spins eight extra-ordinary tales of transformations and metamorphoses. An Illinois farmer teaches a young slave everything he knows - with fatal consequences. A young boy growing to manhood as a country sorcerer's apprentice learns the difference between power and strength. From the first piece to the last, these stories capture very real human experiences in a new and starting light.
