In this reissue of the classic novel, Josh, a logger on the Ohio River, helps runaway slaves to freedom until he is betrayed, captured, and thrown in prison. "In an afterword the reader learns a bit about the sources Meltzer consulted--histories, autobiographies, first-person accounts, and religious and anti-slavery tracts, among others. All add to the historically accurate depiction of the danger, dedication, and perseverance that Josh shows."--"VOYA"
