From the Publisher:
Innovative perspective and use of light as well as a spare text result in an unforgettable portrayal of one slave's journey to freedom. Full color.
A barefoot slave escapes from a planation and tries to make his way to a stop on the underground railroad. Along the way, it seems that the animals of the forest are aiding his escape--leading him to water when he's thirsty, distracting his would-be captors when they get too close, and lighting his way when it is too dark for him to see. The illustrations were created using acrylic paints and colored pencils on watercolor paper.


Kirkus Reviews
"Edwards and Cole create a moving story that conveys the terror that drove slaves to fee planations, risking their lives for freedom." 12/01/1996
