Allmänna fakta



Susannah Emmons receives a letter from Bethlehem Reid and decides that she must go see her. Bethlehem is dying. While Susannah and Mary, her granddaughter, travel by train to Toronto, Susannah tells the story of her friendship with Bethlehem. When Susannah's parents drown, Susannah is sent south to live with her Uncle Reid. Bethlehem becomes Susannah's slave. Taught to abhor slavery, Susannah resists Bethlehem’s care. The girls quickly become fast friends. Eventually, Susannah’s homesickness forces her to “steal away” home. To avoid Byron Reid’s amorous attentions, Bethlehem decides to go with her. Hoping that their disappearance will be blamed on slave stealers, the girls leave early one morning dressed as boys. As they move north, they do odd jobs to earn their keep. In Maryland, they see a notice about their escape. Susannah wants Bethlehem to live with her in Vermont, but after seeing the notice, Bethlehem realizes that Canada is her only safe haven. A knife wound, a loving Quaker family, and the Underground Railroad all play a part in Bethlehem's freedom.

Short non-fiction about the Ernest Shackleton’s voyage to Antarctica on the Endurance, the stranding of the vessel, and how he and his crew made it back to civilization. It is written in a straight-forward manner and highlights Shackleton’s leadership skills. This is a good book if you are looking for the basics of what happened. I can also recommend [b:Endurance: Shackleton's Incredible Voyage|139069|Endurance Shackleton's Incredible Voyage|Alfred Lansing||900140] by [a:Alfred Lansing|29034|Alfred Lansing|] if you are looking for a more detailed version. I listened to the audiobook, competently read by Taylor Mali.… (mer)
