Tygerpen More than 1 year ago
An outstanding book that reads like a movie because of the photographs on almost every other page and the swift, suspenseful, powerful narrative of the writers, a husband and wife team. Although it was displayed as a YA nonfiction book at the local high school, the book is for older readers as well. The story is of Jonathan Daniels, a white Episcopalian theology student who risks his life to put into practice his beliefs by going into early 1960s segregated and dangerous Alabama to assist blacks to register to vote and provide other aid. Undaunted by every obstacle he faced, including by members of his own church, and initially by mistrusting, terrified blacks, Jonathan comes to life in this wonderful book as a heroic and inspirational figure. Ultimately there is no question why Civil Rights leaders have honored him and the Episcopal Church designated him a saint.
