very good . A young 14 yr old rows slaves to freedom on the dark of the moon at the risk of his own life due to his Grandma's urging . And then after many crossings and years it is their turn for freedom . Based on true narratives from slaves that escaped this way. A good book on this subject of the truth is " The Refugee or The Narratives of Fugitive Slaves in Canada " by Drew Benjamin .
