Elijah was the first child born into freedom in a Canadian settlement of runaway slaves. When a friend's money is stolen, Elijah takes off on a dangerous journey to America, and there he discovers firsthand the unimaginable horrors of the enslaved life his parents fled—a life from which he'll always be free, if he can find the courage to make it back home to Canada.

This story won both a Newbery Honor and a Coretta Scott King Author Award. Master storyteller Christopher Paul Curtis brings his trademark humor, compelling storytelling, and vibrant writing to this gripping historical adventure!
