More About This Book

Overview

Young Daniel Arabus and his mother are slaves in the house of Captain Ivers of Stratford, Connecticut. By law they should be free, since Daniel's father fought in the Revolutionary army and earned enough in soldiers' notes to buy his family's freedom.

But now Daniel's father is dead, and Mrs. Ivers has taken the notes from his mother. When Daniel bravely steals the notes back, a furious Captain Ivers forces him aboard a ship bound for the West Indies—and certain slavery. Even if Daniel can manage to jump ship in New York, will he be able to travel the long and dangerous road to freedom?

The second book in the Arabus family saga finds young Daniel trying to retrieve the notes that ensure his and his mother's freedom, until he is forced aboard a boat and headed for certain slavery in the West Indies.

    Great book for elementary to middle school students.

    I read this book for school when I was in Elementary school. It's impact was so great that I still remember it vividly now that I'm a young adult. It's was an important book to me because as a white student who has never seen an African-American before, I learned about the human perspective of a slave when I was still young. I still remember a quote when the main character, Daniel, says that if you took away the color of the skin, African-Americans were the same as whites. There's only one problem with the language and the occasional use of the "N" word.
