A thrilling, brand-new historical fiction series based on real events—perfect for readers of the "I Survived" and "Horrible Histories" series! In this second book, a slave in Kentucky must escape with her child across the frozen Ohio River to freedom.

Winter 1838—Kentucky. Determined to save her toddler son from being sold as a slave, the woman who became known as Eliza Harris began a long journey to freedom. Her goal: to escape across the frozen Ohio River, the boundary between the North and the South, between slavery and freedom in America. Although she knew the journey would be perilous, she could no longer live nor watch her children be raised in slavery. And she was not going to let fear stop her, especially when a new life—a free life—awaited her on the other side.Introduction. Author’s note. Further information about Harriet Beecher Stowe, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, fugitive slave laws, and important abolitionists. “African American Women in the Abolitionist Movement.” Selected bibliography.
