Race for Freedom by Lois Walfrid Johnson

Race for Freedom (Freedom Seekers #2)Race for Freedom by Lois Walfrid Johnson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

"Libby Norstad and her friend Caleb try to help fugitive slave Jordan escape to the free northern states before Jordan's former master can find him and claim him under the recent Dred Scott ruling."

I did not read the first book in the series, maybe that is why I had a hard time really getting into this book. I like the geographical setting for the story, it reminded me a little of Tom Sawyer/Life on the Mississippi.
This is a cute and touching story for middle school aged children with enough adventure to keep even rambunctious boys reading.
