I was intrigued with the title and it certainly delivered. I was amazed that a freed slave from Virginia could come to the wilderness of Ohio with his family and change the complexion of an entire community. I was surprised that restrictive covenants were still in effect until 1999. That was not long ago. I thought we were past that injustice. It showed that history can be rewritten to cover up practices of discrimination against others. Definitely an eye opener.
