Children's Literature - Deborah Zink Roffino
Written for beginning readers, this is the true story of young Allen Jay and his first experience as a conductor on the Underground Railroad. The famed network linked folks who loved their fellow man enough to defy the laws of the country. The Jays were a Quaker family in Ohio who worked together to smuggle the desperate runaways to liberty in Canada. Allen Jay's story illuminates the experience of the valiant people who risked everything to share freedom. Richly textured paintings heighten the drama.
