About the Author:

Gershom Griffith was born in Barbados, West Indies, and moved to Brooklyn, New York, when he was eleven years old. He attended the High School of Art and Design and the Art Students League of New York. He lives in Marietta, Georgia.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3?Beginning 20 days into their journey from Kentucky to Canada, this is the story of one family of runaway slaves' flight to freedom along the Underground Railroad. The first-person, present-tense narrative, told from the perspective of an eight-year-old boy, lends a sense of immediacy to the telling. Griffith's watercolor illustrations most often show the family members grouped tightly together, and their visual closeness underscores the main worry?that they will be sold apart?which sent them on their perilous trek. Not as rich as Deborah Harris's Sweet Clara and the Freedom Quilt (Knopf, 1993), this title nevertheless gives a basic introduction to the Underground Railroad and the dangers and hardships of the journey. Schools involved in the whole-language approach to learning may find the fictionalized autobiographical approach an added plus.?Karen James, Louisville Free Public Library, KY
