Overview

An unlikely friendship between a runaway slave named Crispus Attucks and Gabe, a sickly ten-year-old boy, is the thread Katherine V. Stevens uses to unravel the events that occurred on the eastern seaboard during the late 1700s, including: the Stamp Act, the Boston Massacre, rioting by black and white laborers and seamen, the Boston Tea Party, and the early role Quakers played in abolishing slavery. As a bond of friendship and trust forms between Tucks (Crispus Attucks) and Gabe, readers will learn about whaling, the hard life of being a seaman, the Middle Passage, what a Jack Tar is, and what life was like in colonial America.A story well told and a must-read for anyone, regardless of age, who wants to learn about this important chapter of American history.
