This book depicts the life of a boy name Elijah who was born free and lives on a settlement for runaway slaves in Buxton, Canada during slavery in the United States. Warning!

This is a historical fiction which depicts the history of slavery in America as well as demonstrate family relationships, compassion, generosity, the strength of a people, and community.
