The year is 1853 and eleven-year-old Levi Ives can't wait to cross the wide country to join his brother, Austin, out in the Oregon Territory and escape from boring old Sudbury, Pennsylvania. But life back home suddenly goes from dull to dangerous when Levi's best friend, Jupiter, discovers that his little sister, Darcy, has disappeared, recaptured by slave owners. Levi is white and Jupiter is black, and together they set out into dangerous territory in an attempt to save little Darcy's freedom--and her life. This moving sequel to Dear Levi, told in letters, is rich in history and adventure, a must-have for teachers, reluctant readers, and every Dear Levi fan.
This book is about a young boy writing to his brother in the 1850's regarding his activities and how he came to learn about the underground railroad. A great book for children!
