ÒTHE PEOPLE COULD FLY,Ó the title story in Virginia HamiltonÕs prize-winning American Black folktale collection, is a fantasy tale of the slaves who possessed the ancient magic words that enabled them to literally fly away to freedom. And it is a moving tale of those who did not have the opportunity to ÒflyÓ away, who remained slaves with only their imaginations to set them free as they told and retold this tale.

Leo and Diane Dillon have created powerful new illustrations in full color for every page of this picture book presentation of Virginia HamiltonÕs most beloved tale. The authorÕs original historical note as well as her previously unpublished notes are included.
