He was known nationally for his fine paintings and for starting his own museum in Philadelphia with art and taxidermy. Written in the riveting first-person voice of Moses Williams, Peales former slave, we hear about this great man and his family. Yet it is a sad story of ambition, domination, and eventually death. Respected author Mary E. Lyons takes us from room to room in the famous Peale Museum as her story unfolds -- a story of post-Revolutionary America youll never forget.
