Item Description...
In the pre-Civil War South, a thirteen-year-old boy, Robert, must come to terms with his father's involvement in the Underground Railroad and his mother's antipathy toward abolitionism, as he witnesses the dehumanizing effects of slavery through his friend, a black boy named William Henry. Original.

Publishers Description

They told him his best friend wasn't human. Robert's father assisted the Underground Railroad. His mother adamantly opposed abolition. His best friend was a black boy named William Henry. As a nation neared its boiling point, Robert found himself in his own painful conflict. The one thing he couldn't do was nothing at all. "William Henry" is a coming-of-age story about a 12-year-old boy--and an entire country--that comes face to face with the evils of society, even within the walls of the church. In the safety of an uplifting friendship, he discovers the hope of a brighter day.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Very Moving Story  Dec 21, 2006
This is a powerful story about two boys, William Henry, who is black, and Robert Leslie Glover, who is white. The two are best friends and the setting is Pre-Civil War days. The Henry was taken from Patrick Henry, who fought for freedom, and William Henry thinks it's a fine name.
Robert didn't understand the evils of slavery until the year he turned thirteen and everything changed for him and for William Henry. He learned why his parents fought so much and why his best friend knew more about what was going on than he did.
Cathy Gohlke has written a fascinating, gripping story about the terrible wrongs of slavery and the courage of those willing to fight against it. The characters are so well developed, the emotions so overwhelming that the reader is pulled into the story from the first page to the end. This story will grip your heart. It's more than just a book, it's an experience.
It's hard to believe this is Cathy Gohlke's first novel. Expect more from this very talented writer.
Powerful Story!  Oct 17, 2006
Thirteen-year-old Robert has been raised in a family divided on the issue of slavery, and as he grows up he must decide where he stands and what he will do about it. Through his friendship with his best friend William, time spent in the south with his grandfather, and seeing first-hand the affects of slavery he chooses to become involved with the Underground Railroad. Cathy Gohlkey's first novel is a beautifully written treasure! It can be enjoyed by both adults and teens. The characters and events of the story are so powerful they will stay with you long after you finish the book.
