really liked it

I so admire Wordsong history/poem books, which are beautifully rendered, emotionally-compelling ways to delve into real-life events. Marilyn Nelson is such a fine poet. Some of my favorite lines from Venture's story:

Yes, everything I own is dearly bought,
but gratitude is a never-emptying cup,
my life equal measures pain and windfall.
