Freedom's Wings: Corey's Diary; Kentucky to Ohio, 1857

Corey is a nine-year-old slave living with his family on the Hart Farm in Kentucky. For a small boy, life has many wonderful adventures, but as a slave he isn't allowed to do many things that white children can such as learn to read and write. Corey's father has been teaching him in secret, but when Corey discovers that Massar Bob Hart intends to sell his daddy, his father flees to the North leaving Corey and his mother behind. Eventually Corey and his mother are encouraged to run away, too, using the Underground Railroad to take them north to find Corey's father.

Do Corey and his mother make it to freedom? Find out what happens to them and learn all about the Underground Railroad in this exciting new adventure from MY AMERICA.
