Literate and strong-willed, Frederick Douglass's 1838 escape from slavery in Baltimore foreshadowed a lifetime of political activism for such causes as abolitionism, black equality, and women's suffrage. Written for younger children, Maryann N. Weidt's biography captures Douglass's untiring energy and passion. Page-sized drawings by Jeni Reeves enhance the text, which concludes with a bibliography and index.
