Publisher's Summary

A Newbery Medal Winner

When Amos Fortune was only 15 years old, he was captured by slave traders and brought to Massachusetts, where he was sold at auction. Although his freedom had been taken, Amos never lost his dignity and courage. For 45 years, Amos worked as a slave and dreamed of freedom. And, at age 60, he finally began to see those dreams come true.

Lovely Book, narrated very well.

This was a beautiful book. Real and true, but not too hard for the children to listen. The narrator did a lovely job as well.

Excellent book!

This was an excellent book that I highly recommend. A beautiful story about a kind, humble, giving Christian man who overcame an adverse start in early life. My daughter has to read this book the coming school year and I thought I'd pre read it to see what it was about. Wonderful narration by Roslyn Ruff. An excellent read!
