Slavery...
Escape and death...
The price of freedom...

Nicknamed Runaway for his numerous escapes, a young slave dreams of freedom. Again and again he runs, only to be enslaved once more. Unable to stand more punishment, he commits the ultimate sin - he kills a white overseer. Now, it's run or hang.

Amid death and sacrifice, Runaway heads north. He finds a station of the Underground Railroad which leads him to meet the Coopers, a special family, who take him in and give him his first true home. But danger follows and moving slaves to freedom becomes more difficult.

Join Runaway on his journey of learning to fulfill responsibility and that freedom never comes without a price.

Meet the Author

I'm Kit Prate. I grew up in a small town in the Midwest; a great place where people never locked their doors and where the neighbors watched out for each other and all the children. Consequently, we had to work very hard to get into mischief without getting caught. In my case, it was pretty easy. I was a tomboy. I fished, I hiked; I explored acres of open fields, carrying my own Red Ryder BB Gun. My real playground was the stockyards. Years later, when I was working as a subcontractor for the Bureau of Indian Affairs, I had the opportunity to rekindle that love. There was nothing better than a weekend on horseback riding through places like Monument Valley, the hill country in Texas, the deserts in Arizona, the vastness of the Sioux reservation; or the same country where Billy the Kid rode, and ultimately died. I don't write history. I write western fiction; what could have been. Stories of strong men and women who survived the best and the worst the West had to offer. All in all; it has been a great life. Especially with four kids tossed into the mix. Every day is a gift, and a surprise.
