The year is 1858, and a 14-year old house servant named Callie and another young slave named William attempt a daring escape on the Underground Railroad. Traveling by night, these brave teens come across things they cannot believe, such as an African-American newspaper published by escaped slave Frederick Douglass, all the while amazingly avoiding capture.Barbara Brooks weaves fact-based oral histories of the fictional charactersCallie and William with rich period photographs, maps, and/or illustrations on every page, that place the adventures squarely within the era.
An account of two slaves who escaped from their masters in Kentucky and, aided by the people of the Underground Railroad, made their way to freedom in Canada.
