Which Way Freedom? (Obi and Easter Trilogy)

by

Which Way Freedom? (Obi and Easter Trilogy) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Obi had never forgotten the sounds of his mother's screams on the day he was sold away from her. Making plans to run away to find her was a secret game he played with friend Buka, an old African who lived at the edge of the farm.

When the Civil War began, Obi knew it was time to run — or be sold again. If he was caught, he'd be killed...or worse. But if he stayed, he might never know freedom.

Synopsis:

Based on actual events and revealing little known facts about the lives of runaway slaves, this novel follows the lives of Obi, who had never forgotten the sounds of his mother's screams on the day he was sold away from her, and who runs away as the Civil War begins, and his friend Easter.
