Description: Under the quilt of night a young slave girl leads her loved ones away from the slave master who worked them: hoeing and picking, / mending and sewing, / till my hands got raw. In this striking companion to Deborah Hopkinson and James Ransome Sweet Clara and the Freedom Quilt, Hopkinson uses the rhythm of verse to echo the drumming of the slaves feet as they travel along the Underground Railroad in pre-Civil War times. (40 pgs) Ages 4-8
Ashay says, "As in their first book, Sweet Clara the quilt played an important role in helping to make sure that the slaves made it to freedom, during their escape on the Underground Railroad. Great story and beautiful oil paintings by James E. Ransome."
