List Price: $16.99 (Hardcover - History / Slavery / Underground Railroad / Freedom Stories - 2012)

Description: Award-winning poet Ntozake Shange and artist Rod Brown reimagine the journeys of the brave men and women who made their way to freedom on the Underground Railroad.
Fleeing on the Underground Railroad meant walking long distances; swimming across streams; hiding in abandoned shanties, swamps, and ditches, always on the run from slave trackers and their dogs.

ah might get hungry ah may get tired good Lawd ah may be free

The Underground Railroad operated on secrecy and trust. But who could be trusted? There were free black and white men and women helping, risking their lives, too. Because freedom was worth any risk. Celebrated collaborators Ntozake Shange and Rod Brown pay tribute to the Underground Railroad, a universal story about the human need to be free.(32 pgs) Ages 9-12

Ashay says, Celebrated poet, Ntozake Shange (For Colored Girls) is an excellent children's book author. As with the book We Troubled the Water, she keeps it real and allows young children to experience the pain, sorrow of being a Slave on the run. She also provides a window to experience the sacrifice that others made trying to help them reach freedom. Great book for the Classroom and library. Teach!"
