This short story is a testimony to the depths of a father's love. One day in June of 1951, Billy Johnson's father delayed plowing long enough to teach his son how to trap a rabbit. In the past, he had never seen his father delay plowing for any reason, especially when he was using black hired hands. Years later, after his father's death, he would learn why.
