In this unforgettable book, an African prince is sold into slavery in Massachusetts, but dies a free man and a respected member of his community.  Amos Fortune's noble life, his devotion to the cause of the weak and the needy, and his legacy to his town and church present the best concept of understanding that we have yet found in children's literature.
