Summary "Meet Denver, raised under plantation-style slavery in Louisiana until he escaped "da Man" in the 1960s by hopping a train. He then spends 18 homeless years on the streets of Dallas until he meets Deborah. Her husband, Ron, an international art dealer accustomed to the world of Armani suits and art-collecting millionaires is uncomfortable with Denver. Then the story takes a devastating twist when Deborah discovers she has cancer. Will Ron embrace his dying wife's vision to rescue Denver, or will Denver be the one rescuing Ron? Can Denver learn to trust a white man? There's pain and laughter, doubt and tears, and in the end a triumphant story that readers will never forget." -- Provided by publisher.
