Eleven-year-old slave George Washington “Wash” Black is terrified when he’s assigned to serve his master’s brother. To his surprise, Christopher Wilde is a naturalist, explorer, scientist, inventor, and abolitionist, who introduces him to new experiences and opportunities. When a man is killed and Wash is blamed, the two go on the run.
