Underground: Finding the Light to Freedom

Underground: Finding the Light to Freedom



One of School Library Journal‘s Best Nonfiction Books of 2011

A few well chosen words and spellbinding images pack an emotion wallop not soon forgotten in this picture book for young readers about the Underground Railroad.

A family silently crawls along the ground. They run barefoot through unlit woods, sleep beneath bushes, take shelter in a kind stranger’s home. Where are they heading? They are heading for freedom by way of the Underground Railroad.
