Carmel, in Patria Press, Inc. 2007 1882859588 / 9781882859580 First Printing Soft Cover New No Jacket Issued Jacket Morrison, Cathy 
The inspiring story of Frederick Douglass's rise from slavery to prominence as an early abolitionist and civil rights champion is featured in this volume of the Young Patriots series. Focusing on Douglass's early years, this profile details his difficult upbringing as a slave on a Maryland plantation, his early separation from his mother, and his move as an adolescent to the home of the Auld family in Baltimore. From a young age, Douglass knew that knowledge was a passport out of slavery, and this biography reveals his fierce dedication to education. Lively drawings illustrate the climate in which he grew up and the hurdles faced on the road to equality and freedom. Special features include a summary of Douglass's adult accomplishments, including his position as advisor to President Lincoln; little-known facts about him; and a time line of his life. Signed by Morrison on the title page.
