My Brother's Story, set in the South of the 1930s, is the story of identical twin boys who are separated at a very early age. Will has grown up in a happy, well-off family near Birmingham, Alabama, while his brother, Johnny, has been living in Tennessee with their mean-spirited aunt. Will's objective is to have as much fun as possible, while Johnny must do his best to survive in an environment of neglect and abuse. In a time so very different from today, the two boys travel by steam train, flat-bottomed boat, and even biplane to find each other. Johnny is befriended by an elderly black man named Abraham Lincoln Frasier, who lives deep in a Georgia swamp near Savannah. In this dangerous but exciting wilderness of snakes and alligators, Johnny and Linc must confront and overcome and even greater danger: racial hatred. My Brother's Story is about the timeless values of goodness, generosity, and simple human dignity.
