The True Story of Margaret and Susan Wilkerson: Slave Girls on the Run

This is the true story (15 minute read) of Margaret, 12 and Susan, 10 Wilkerson. In the winter of 1839, Margaret and Susan fled slavery in Tennessee and ran for the safety of their Grandparents, 200 miles north in Indiana. This story is action packed and thrilling from start to finish! While I believe people of all ages will enjoy it, I wrote it with grade school children in mind.

What Reviewers are Saying

This is a great read for all, especially younger audiences just learning about slavery. I wanted to cheer for Grandma Millie, an everyday hero!
