Publishers Description
As part of the relaunch of the My America series, Sharon Dennis Wyeth introduces readers to Corey Birdsong, a slave boy in antebellum Kentucky. This is the story of his family's attempt to escape.
Corey Birdsong is a lively young boy in search of freedom in the same country that made an economy of slavery. He and his family are owned by the Hart family of Kentucky. But, when Corey's father, Roland, flees to the North and Corey and his mother follow.
Corey records his daily life on the Hart farm with incredible insight and honesty, and later he describes the difficult journey along the "Underground Railroad" to the North to be reunited with his father. With the help of many kind strangers, Corey, his parents, and his new baby sister arrive afely in Canada.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Adventurous Book  May 29, 2007
Freedom's Wings gives the reader some indication of life as it existed during the 1850's. The book focuses on a family and the individual member's quest for freedom from slavery. The almost daily entries by Corey Birdsong in his dairy tells the story of his father's fight against slavery to obtain his freedom, how he learns to read and write, and how his family made it to Canada after escaping and being separated on occasions. The book is exciting, and takes the reader on an adventure through swamps, caves and other places with assistance from the Underground Railroad. Other books to read: "Trilogy Moments for the Mind, Body and Soul" which includes the new Epulaeryu Poetry, "Everyday Miracles" by Okubo, and "The Language of Poetry Forms" by Tree Good..

freedom's runaway diary  May 27, 2005
This book is about i a little boy named freedom that was sold to these people with his family. Well that family treated them very badly, so they had to find a way to get to the underground railroad. The first person that escaped from freedom's family was his father. Then freedom and his mother ran off becasue they wanted to find his father. Read on to find out if they find his father or not. If not they will get beaten badly or even killed by there owners becasue they found out freedom had left.
Connor's Review  Feb 10, 2005
Freedom wings is about a slave boy named Corey and his family that try to escape the Harts. That is the family that owns the boy and his family. His dad is a blacksmith and his mom is a gardener for the Harts.

This story takes place in the 1857 and 1858. This story is about a boy and his family that escape from the Harts and go to the under ground railroad. I'll leave the rest for you to find out.

I would recommend this book to third grade to 5th grade readers. I think a lot of kids should read this book to because it is a good book, and it has a good author. I would definitely recommend this book to a friend because it is an amazing book. So read this book!
