||"A visual saga in linocuts of the life of John 'Daddy' Hall, a man of Mohawk and African-American descent who survived war, capture and slavery to become a pillar of the community in 19th-century Owen Sound. Hall's tale is the stuff of legends--the War of 1812, the harsh realities of slavery and of triumph in the face of adversity. He identified as a freeman, a scout for the British under Tecumseh, a captured slave, an escapee on the Underground Railroad, a husband and, as his name implies, a father to an impressive number of children. Tony Miller's 80 stark linocuts present and unflinching portrait of this remarkable individual whose story of resilience and reinvention offers fascinating glimpse into the history of Southwestern Ontario. The introduction is written by George Elliott Clarke, Canada's Parliamentary Poet."-- Provided by publisher.
