Item Description...
Thrilling adventure stories introducing young readers (ages 8-12) to Christian heroes of the past.

Living as a slave with her family on an old Maryland plantation in 1853, twelve-year-old Rosebud Jackson had been helping her mother with the cooking for the Big House as long as she could remember. Rosebud's world seemed like an endless pile of pots and pans to wash, food to prepare, and bread to bake. Her father worked long days in the fields while her fifteen-year-old brother Isaac was the stable boy.

But when a series of tragedies strike, Sarah is left alone and very afraid. Her only hope is that the words of her father will come true: "Just listen for the whippoorwill." When the harvest season is over, this sound will be her signal to follow in a desperate attempt to escape her cruel slavery.

On the darkest of nights, Rosebud will meet the mysterious person the slaves called "Moses," who will lead her and other slaves on a harrowing journey toward the North on the Underground Railroad. Harriet Tubman, known as "Moses," was also an escaped slave and became notorious for leading bands of runaways on their dangerous passage to Canada.

Will Rosebud be able to keep up? Does Harriet Tubman know the way?

Great book  Apr 6, 2008
The Trailblazer Series is a favorite in our family among our 7 and 9 year olds (and Mom and Dad too). The books are educational and captivating! I want my children to be reading things that inspire them to step out and do great things and these books meet that goal.
Good historical fiction about a slave girl.  Feb 22, 2005
Twelve-year-old Rosebud Jackson has lived her whole life as a slave on a Maryland plantation. But with her family beside her, it hasn't been so bad. That all changes in the spring of 1853. Her older brother, Isaac, tries to run away, but is caught and sold away to the deep south. Her mother gives birth to a stillborn baby and dies soon after. Then Rosebud's father decides to escape to freedom, but Rosebud must stay behind to give him more time to get away. He promises to return for her that fall, but instead, Harriet Tubman comes, saying she will lead Rosebud to freedom, where she can be reunited with her father. But the escape north is long and dangerous, and Rosebud begins to wonder if she will ever be free, and ever see what is left of her family again.

This was a good historical novel for young readers that brought to life the terrible hardship of slavery and how it tore families apart. Rosebud is a very sympathetic character who at a young age goes through so much hardship and tragedy yet manages to hold on to her hope and faith. I recommend this book to readers who like to read historical novels about this era.
