Sweet Clara and the Freedom Quilt

By Deborah Hopkinson

An inspiring tale of creativity and determination on the Underground Railroad from Coretta Scott King Award winner James Ransome and acclaimed author Deborah Hopkinson.

Clara, a slave and seamstress on a home plantation, dreams of freedom—not just for herself, but for her family and friends. When she overhears a conversation about the Underground Railroad, she has a flash of inspiration. Using scraps of cloth from her work in the big house and scraps of information gathered from other slaves, she fashions a map that the master would never even recognize.
