Synopsis

Frederick Douglass by Elisabeth P. Myers

Hook kids on history with this series. - Learning magazine These biographies are a wonderful way of making history come alive for young readers. Children are sure to be inspired by stories of ordinary children who do extraordinary things. - The Old Schoolhouse magazine The inspiring story of Frederick Douglasss 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 Douglasss 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 Douglasss adult accomplishments, including his position as advisor to President Lincoln; little-known facts about him; and a time line of his life.
