    "What am I to bid for this strong, healthy girl?" the auctioneer asked.

    The crowd on the Boston wharf on this June morning in 1761 laughed. The small black girl actually looked very frail. She was wrapped in a piece of ragged carpet, but she shivered and coughed in a cool breeze…"

    Kidnapped from Africa and sold into slavery at the age of seven, Phillis Wheatley overcame incredible obstacles to become one of the most notable poets of the American Revolution. What was her role in the Boston Tea Party? Find out in Volume 10 of the Young Patriot Series. Phillis Wheatley, Young Revolutionary Poet tells the dramatic story of this young heroine whose talent and perseverance lifted her from a life of servitude to become the first notable, female African-American writer, and the first slave to publish a book.

    Encourage your young readers to learn new vocabulary! "What does That Mean" features definitions of unusual words in the story. As in all of the Young Patriots Series, you will also find "What Happened Next," "Fun Facts About Phillis Wheatley," and "When Phillis Wheatley Lived."
