Description

Since his family immigrated to New York a year ago, Hiram Goldfarb has been running from the relentless bullies whose anti-Semitic taunts are the least painful thing about them. Knowing his peace-loving father would never approve, Hiram sneaks out of his familyís tenement at night to watch the bareknuckle fights at the Woodrat. Each night, he begs a local manager to train him to defend himself. Itís not until the managerís top fighter, a teenage former slave who goes only by the name Lightning, takes Hiram under his wing that his education as a fighter begins. But Lightning himself has been running. Wanted for committing a crime, his days of hiding out in the Bowery may be over when a Southern gentleman begins poking his nose around. Scheduled to fight his main tormentor, Hiram must choose between ending the bullying once and for all, or helping Lightning escape the Southernerís wrath.
