Read in January, 2011 — I own a copy

David’s Pa whips James savagely. He chances his Pa’s wrath to administer first aid to a slave. David is afraid for Jenkins’ safety. The possibility of what Pa might do is too much for him. He makes contact with people involved with the Underground Railroad. To learn how the story ends buy a copy today.

In Donna McDine’s debut book witness a poignant depiction of the best and worst of humanity. The portrayal of the brutality dealt a slave and a white boy’s sense of right and wrong are expertly exposed. K.C. Snider is a fine artist and each illustration is a masterpiece. The historical fiction picture book’s succinct and imaginative story, coupled with the illustration are a buffet for readers of all ages. I highly recommend this book.
