Based on a true story, Prisoner 88 is the story of ten-year-old Jake, sent to the Old Idaho Penitentiary in 1885 to serve a five-year sentence for manslaughter. Issues of racism, justice, literacy, and frontier life inform James’s story, with a compelling first-person voice that instantly transports the reader to the 19th-century American West.
