A new collection of poems from award-winning African American poet Frank X Walker. In this creative foray into persona poems, Walker immerses himself in the life of African-American jockey Isaac Burns Murphy (1861-1896). Murphy's legendary career riveted the attention of the nation and established him as one of the greatest jockeys of all time. Walker gives us the voices of Murphy and his wife Lucy, his mentor Eli Jordan, and his parents James and America Burns. A great teaching book on the neglected history of African-Americans in the history of thoroughbred racing, the racial tension of the post-Civil War South and other important themes. The book is a compelling journey into the heart and mind, family and community of America's most celebrated black jockey.
