Author(s): K/H (Pathways)
This Newberry Award–winning title tells the story of Amos Fortune, who was born the son of a king in the At-mun-shi tribe in Africa. When Amos 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 away, Amos never lost his dignity and courage. He dreamed of being free and of buying the freedom of his closest friends. By the time he was 60 years old, Amos Fortune began to see those dreams come true.
