They keep secret the fact that Manu is a girl in disguise so that she can accompany her brother aboard ship.

But the hunters are kidnapped by slave traders, as are the women and children of the village. In Brazil the siblings adapt to their new lives, but they are shocked by the treatment of African slaves. Manu befriends an aboriginal boy, Caiubi, and a slave, Didi, who has been separated from his father. Meanwhile Bento falls in love with Rosa, a beautiful young slave who is also searching for her family.

There once was a boy, Pepe and his grandfather José, and neither knew how to read or write; this was not uncommon in their town. One day, they had an argument and, in order to communicate with each other, they hired Miguel, a man whose job was to read and write for illiterate people. Many letters were passed from one to the other while Pepe paid Miguel by going to school, and José paid him with flowers from his own garden. Pepe continues going to school and writes another letter with surprising results. --Cataloger supplied
