About the book:

As a seamstress in the Big House, Clara is luckier than the slaves who work the fields. Still, she dreams of a reunion with her Momma, who lives on another plantationand even of running away to freedom. Then she hears two slaves talking about how they could find the Underground Railroad if only they had a map. In a flash of inspiration, Clara sees how she can use the cloth in her scrap bag to make a map of the landa freedom quiltthat no master will ever suspect. Drawn from true incidents in African-American history, this is a compelling and emotionally charged picture book.
