Beschreibung

Bloodhounds chase twelve-year-old slave Moses as he follows the North Star to Pennsylvania on the Underground Railroad. His mother taught him to find the star before she was sold to a plantation hundreds of miles away. Finally in Harrisburg, Moses finds shelter with an abolitionist family, but when the Fugitive Slave Act becomes law, northerners caught harboring runaways must pay a fine and go to jail. Moses and a slave girl living with the family flee. They escape by canal boat, steamship, and rail, but slave catchers pursue them at every turn. Freedom in Canada seems far away. Will they ever reach it?



Autorentext

Cindy Noonan writes stirring historical fiction for kids, giving history a heartbeat. She researched many authentic Underground Railroad sites in Pennsylvania, New York, and Canada for DARK ENOUGH TO SEE THE STARS, the story of a twelve-year-old slave boy who flees his plantation and runs away on the Underground Railroad. Her book earned a silver medal in 2014 for preteen eBook fiction from Moonbeam Children's Book Awards. Cindy and her husband Frank have been married forty-eight years and have five adult children. She has taught Sunday school, elementary school, and art classes. Cindy is a law enforcement wife who has accompanied her husband around the nation while he worked for the FBI, Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office, and the Pennsylvania State Police. In her spare time she and Frank cheer on their nine grandchildren at soccer and softball games, dance and piano recitals, and stage plays.
