And the people planted dreams and hope, 
willed themselves to keep 
living, living.

And the people learned new words 
for love 
for friend 
for family

for joy 
for grow 
for home.

With powerful verse and striking illustrations by Nikkolas Smith, Born on the Water provides a pathway for readers of all ages to reflect on the origins of American identity.
