While 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 for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards)
