Patchwork Path to Freedom, The Inspired by true stories of how quilts were created with codified messages that helped runaway slaves navigate the Underground Railroad, this lovely picture book tells how a young girl and her father escape to Canada with the aid of the quilt her mother helped her daughter to sew. Their progress is related in short episodes which illustrate the hidden wisdom of each patchwork square. Full-page paintings convey the powerful emotions of hope, fear and bravery that propel them on their path to freedom.
