Through poems and poetic prose pieces, acclaimed children's author Arnold Adoff celebrates that uniquely American form of music ca...lled the blues. In his signature andldquo;shaped speech style, he creates a narrative of moments and joyous music, from the drums of the ancestors, the red dirt of the plantations, the current of the mighty Mississippi, and the shackles, blood, and tears of slavery. Each chop of the ax is a beat, each lash of the whip fashions another line on the musical staff. But each sound also creates the chords and harmonies that preserve the ancestors and their stories, and sustain life, faith, and hope into our own times.Book Details:Format: Library BindingPublication Date: 1/3/2011Pages: 96Reading Level: Age 9 and Up Read More
