Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Treachery, adventure and the dream of freedom triumph in this stunningly evocative historical adventure, inspired by a stunning real-life story, and brought to a modern teen audience by a Carnegie Medal winning author.It's 1848 in the Deep South of America. Fair-skinned Rosa is a slave but can 'pass for white'. With the help of Moses, her husband, she disguises herself as a young white man - and Moses's master. In this guise, the two of them must make their way out of the South, explaining away their lack of literacy, avoiding those they have encountered before and holding their nerve over a thousand miles to freedom. Inspired by the amazing true story of Ellen Craft who escaped a life of slavery through a daring disguise and won freedom for herself and her husband.
