In 49 words Shane Evans takes us deep into the Underground Railroad to experience the darkness, the fear, the hopes and the sorrows. His haunting illustrations are dark blue with occasional glimpses of light as those on the Underground Railroad must have experienced occasional glimpses of hope and human kindness. The suspense builds as the family runs, crawls and hides always bathed in a melancholy deep blue hue. Yet, when they triumph at the end and make their escape the light bursts forth to shine on their children and their futures. This is a fantastic picture book to read aloud to ages 6 and up to help them experience for themselves the journey of the Underground Railroad. Ages 6 and up 32 pages
