Here is a gripping true story in time for Black History Month. The book recounts how Ellen and William Craft escaped slavery in Georgia through daring, determination, and disguise, with Ellen passing as a wealthy, disabled white man and William posing as "his" slave. “Suspenseful and wonderfully told. A captivating tale that ably captures the determination and courage of a remarkable couple.” ~ Kirkus Reviews
