slaves in the South were dreaming of following the drinking gourd to freedom
in the North, Levi and his friend Jupiter (who had been born a slave) head
south on a poorly planned mission of mercy; Jupiter's sister Darcy has
been captured by slave traders! Follow along as Levi records his adventures
in letters to his brother Austin in Oregon, letters which, considering
the danger, may never be sent. A historically accurate story, you will
meet Harriet Tubman and really feel many of the emotions of this exciting
time. This is the sequel to the author's popular book, Dear Levi: Letters
from the Overland Trail. (Jeannie Bellavance email@example.com
