On to Freedom! Author Carlton Jackson has done it again! This time with Freedom’s Way, weaving a compelling tale in an epic novel showing the extraordinary efforts to which freedom-loving people will go for their dream of Liberty. In this book, two pre-Civil War era slaves, Ellen and William Craft of Georgia, devise a brave and cunning plan of escape from their life of bondage that is full of intrigue and peril at every turn of this amazing journey.
Could Ellen, who is half white, dressed as a sickly plantation owner going North for “his” health, accompanied by his slave William, ever thread her way through a highly suspicious and adverse territory? Follow their precarious trek as they stay only a step ahead of the slave catchers up the American East Coast, through the Underground Railroad and toward their elusive but undying vision, Freedom.
Proceeds from the sale of this book will also help other communities and organizations preserve their history through Our American Heritage Project, a non-profit organization.
About The Author
A wonderful story of hope, tribulation and success! Carlton Jackson brings home the inhumanity of slavery and weaves a fascinating and heart-rending story of human beings whose only desire was justice and equality. While accurately placed mid-nineteenth-century history, Freedom’s Way carries clear messages for the modern day. A must read for all ages!-Frederick M.
