Description
(A New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book of 2012) A young farm girl's courage is tested in this haunting, wordless story for all ages. When she discovers a runaway slave hiding in the barn, the girl is startled and also frightened. But the stranger's fearful eyes weigh upon her conscience, and she makes a difficult choice. Will she have the courage to help him? Unspoken ties of humanity unite the girl and the runaway as they each face a journey—one following the North Star toward freedom, the other following her heart. With striking graphite illustrations, filling the pages with beautiful textures and seeming almost to glow, Henry Cole has infused this unusual Underground Railroad story with warmth and compassion.

"Gorgeously rendered in soft, dark pencils, this wordless book is reminiscent of the naturalistic pencil artistry of Maurice Sendak and Brian Selznick, but unique in its accurate re-creation of a Civil War-era farm in northwestern Virginia.... An author's note details the Civil War stories Cole heard as a young boy and underscores his intention of showing not the division, anger, and violence of the Civil War, but 'the courage of everyday people who were brave in quiet ways'."—School Library Journal (starred review)
