About the Author

Antwan Eady is the author of the award-winning picture book Nigel and the Moon, illustrated by Gracey Zhang. Down the dirt roads of South Carolina's Low Country is where Antwan's understanding of--and appreciation for--family, community, and land unfolded. Now he shares those stories with the world. When he isn't writing, he's visiting schools, libraries, and colleges throughout the country. A graduate of Clemson University, Antwan lives in Savannah, Georgia.

Jarrett and Jerome Pumphrey are a sibling author-illustrator duo from Houston, Texas. Together they work on books for kids like It's a Sign!, Somewhere in the Bayou, The Old Boat, and their author-illustrator debut The Old Truck, which received seven starred reviews, was named Best Book of the Year by Publisher's Weekly, and an Ezra Jack Keats New Author Honor. Jarrett currently resides in Austin, Texas with his wife, two sons, and his two dogs, Whiskey and Ford. Jerome currently resides in Clearwater, Florida with his wife, daughter, and son.

Reviews

★ "The Pumphrey brothers convey a feeling of community-created abundance as the narrator reflects on family history in this intergenerational story that hints at larger sociopolitical issues." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

★ "A sumptuously illustrated, bittersweet story that's at once an ode to and a eulogy for Black American farms." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"A celebratory love letter and a solemn apology to Black farmers." --The Bulletin
