About the Author:

Historian, author and descendant of a free African American who died in the historic Battle of Wyoming, Denise Dennis is the president of The Dennis Farm Charitable Land Trust, created in 2001 to preserve the 153-acre Dennis Farm in the Endless Mountains, Susquehanna County. The trust is dedicated to developing the farm and land into an educational and cultural site for cultural heritage tourism.
The farm, potentially a site associated with the Underground Railroad, was originally settled by the family of Prince Perkins, a free African American who died in the Battle of Wyoming and who emigrated to northeastern Pennsylvania from Connecticut in 1793 following the American Revolution. Dennis, the great-great-great-great granddaughter of Perkins, is an author of several books.

Review:

"It works beautifully for any age person. Highly informative. Doesn't patronize. Intellectually challenging without being intimidating. Emotionally rewarding for black readers... academically gratifying." -- Andrew Salkey

 "This excellent little book on Black history... is very readable and informative... It faces the issue of Black people's omission in history head on." -- The Teacher
