I Am David (65 Edition)by Anne Holm
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
David's entire twelve-year life has been spent in a grisly prison camp in Eastern Europe. He knows nothing of the outside world. But when he is given the chance to escape, he seizes it. With his vengeful enemies hot on his heels, David struggles to cope in this strange new world, where his only resources are a compass, a few crusts of bread, his two aching feet, and some vague advice to seek refuge in Denmark. Is that enough to survive?
David's extraordinary odyssey is dramatically chronicled in Anne Holm's classic about the meaning of freedom and the power of hope.
Holm's 1963 novel "North to Freedom" is the basis for an upcoming motion picture from Walden Media, starring James Caviezel and Joan Plowright. In 1952, after escaping from the Communist concentration camp in Bulgaria where he's spent most of his life, 12-year-old David struggles to cope in a strange, new world, and seeks refuge in Denmark.
