About the Book: 
Winter's story begins with a peg-leg sailor who aids slaves on their escape on the Underground Railroad. While working for plantation owners, Peg Leg Joe teaches the slaves a song about the drinking gourd (the Big Dipper). Rich paintings interpret the strong story in a clean, primitive style enhanced by bold colors.
