One winter morning in 1848, Ellen Craft, a light-skinned young slave, disguised herself in men's clothing and walked into the train station at Macon Georgia. "Tickets for myself and my slave," she said, and magically, the precious tickets which no slave could buy were handed to her. Ellen, posing as a white Southern planter, with her husband, William, as her slave, now began the dangerous journey which could end in freedom - or death.
Using contemporary newspaper articles, journals, and the published narrative of William Craft, Florence Freedman recounts the true story of William and Ellen Craft vividly and dramatically. Powerful illustrations by Ezra Jack Keats enhance this moving testimony of courage.
