Following a few seconds’ hard appraisal, his face broadens with recognition. “Oh sure,” he exclaims, “there you go, I see it now. It’s in the eyes. Same challenge.

Woven across the slave’s back was a coarse latticework of whipping scars, each 52 LANDSMAN thread raised thick and white in the noonday sun. ” Lieber asked his son. “How scarred his back is? ” The boy said he did. ” In heading for the great house, Gerta limping a few paces behind, boiling with rage, Elias noticed how the laneside live oaks met over him at the very tips of their limbs, the sun piercing through in gaps of geometry, leaf to leaf, angle to angle.
