Amistad: The Story of a Slave Ship (All Aboard Reading) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Spanish, Amistad means friendship. It was also the name of a slave ship. In 1838, the Amistad took hundreds of kidnapped Africans on a long journey across the Atlantic, but the brave captives would not give up their freedom, taking over the ship so they could sail back to their homeland. Patricia C. McKissack, Caldecott and Newbery Honor Winner as well as a three-time winner of the Coretta Scott King Award, recounts an amazing chapter in American history for beginning readers.

Synopsis:

A three-time Coretta Scott King Award-winning author recounts an amazing chapter in American history. In 1838, the slave ship "Amistad" took hundreds of Africans on a long journey across the Atlantic. The brave captives, however, would not give up their freedom. Full color.
