“(An) ambitious tale…emotionally wrenching…designed to let readers ‘experience’ history…The novel demonstrates how prejudice extends beyond black and white….In this book, with its themes of courage, friendship that ignores skin color, and the love between parent and child, the author does not flinch from portraying bigotry and the cruelty of slavery….If nothing else, this story should make them think.” Linda Salisbury – Foreword Magazine, August 2001


With deft pen and simple words, Alan N. Kay has re-created the exciting world of the United States just before the Civil War…(in a) breathtaking adventure…Mr. Kay?s dialogue and characterization bring to life the historical era and give breath to these young heroes of our past”  — Linda Hutton of Hutton Book-Review Services – May 2001
