Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2003 Spring)
Unlike the events covered in the other volumes in this formulaic series, the African-American experience of immigration to the United States was not by choice. The horrors of the trip and the wretched use of slaves is aptly told. And there is also the story of resistance as CinquT took over the [cf2]Amistad[cf1], and slaves escaped north on the Underground Railroad. Archival and contemporary photos illustrate the text.
