When winter draws near, how will the Christina escape the untimely, fast-approaching ice storm?
In the dark of night come the rapid strokes of the ship's bell, dense fog, and the slap of paddlewheels against water—and then the whistle screams a warning. A steamboat's coming too fast, too close. Run!
Out of the darkness and danger come the piercing notes of a gifted fiddler. His face seems to hold a secret. What is the fiddler's challenge for the Freedom Seekers of every place and time?
How will the Freedom Seekers answer Captain Norstad's questions: “What is most important to you? What do you really want?”
From the golden age of steamboats, the rush of immigrants to new lands, and the dangers of the Underground Railroad come true-to-life stories of courage, integrity, and suspense in the Freedom Seekers series.
