Amazon.com Review
Winner of the Golden Kite Award from the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, One More River to Cross is essentially a photographic history of black America. Walter Dean Myers, a celebrated writer of young adult books, writes that he wanted to show black Americans as they're not always shown. Thus there are photographs of former slaves, black soldiers in the Civil War, black cowboys, baseball players, sailors, aviators, farmers, field hands, and just plain folks. Myers's text is minimal, leaving the emphasis on the photographs, which are sometimes haunting and sometimes inspiring, but always moving.
