To Free a Family : The Journey of Mary Walker, Paperback / softback Book

To Free a Family : The Journey of Mary Walker Paperback / softback


Tells the remarkable story of Mary Walker, who in August 1848 fled her owner for refuge in the North and spent the next seventeen years trying to recover her son and daughter.

Her freedom, like that of thousands who escaped from bondage, came at a great price - remorse at parting without a word, fear for her family's fate.
