  • Résumé

Presents the story of the struggle to freedom by thousands of African-American slaves who fled the plantations to fight behind British lines in the American War of Independence. This title follows the escaped blacks into the fires of the war, and into freezing, inhospitable Nova Scotia where many were betrayed in their promises to receive land.
