Product Details

Praise

This works well as a story and also as a lesson in African-American history.
—School Library Journal

The exciting escape story makes the history immediate, and the fascinating quilt-code messages will have children revisiting the page that shows each symbol and its secret directions.
—Booklist

The child’s candid first-person narrative captures her apprehension as well as her hope and determination. Newcomer Bennett contributes dramatic oil paintings in an earth-toned palette.
—Publishers Weekly

Bennett’s strong, beautiful illustrations bring out the tedium and suspense of the long journey north from Georgia, following wagon wheel, flying geese, drunkard’s path, and stars to freedom.
—Washington Post Book World

Bettye Stroud’s poignant book teaches kids about the importance of the Underground Railroad.
—Parents
