In 1858 Texas, people are violently divided over a law that makes it a crime to help runaway slaves. Caleb isn't sure how he feels. When an escaped slave saves his life, Caleb knows he has a debt to repay. But should he break the law and risk his life to help two slaves escape?
"Fast paced and filled with details that illuminate a less well-known escape route than the Underground Railroad." —School Library Journal
