$7.99
Illus. in full color. As a seamstress in the Big House, Clara dreams of a
reunion with her Momma, who lives on another plantation--and even of running
away to freedom. Then she overhears two slaves talking about the Underground
Railroad. In a flash of inspiration, Clara sees how she can use the cloth in
her scrap bag to make a map of the land--a freedom quilt--that no master will
ever suspect. "A particularly effective way to introduce the subject to younger
children, adding a trenchant immediacy to their understanding of a difficult
but important chapter in the country's past."--(starred) "Horn Book."
"This first-rate book is a triumph of the heart."--(starred) "Publishers
Weekly.
