With a foreword by Dred Scott's great-grandson, Shelia P. Moses' stunning story chronicles Dred Scott's experiences as a slave, as a plaintiff in one of the most important legal cases in American history, and, at last, as a free man. Dred Scott's story is one of tremendous courage and fierce determination. His is a life that should be known by, and should inspire, all Americans.

I realize that this is a work of fiction; however, I was expecting greater emphasis on the court proceedings, and greater detail surrounding Dred Scott and his family. The story was interesting enough, I just wanted there to be...more.
This story is a vary historical story. This is a good book because you can learn about slavery,family,and fairness. I recommend this book to all fourth and fifth graders. I give this book a 4 star rating
This book was brought to my attention by another book I have. I had never in my schooling heard of the Dred Scott case and was thrilled to learn more about it. As I continue to learn about the years of slavery I will come back to this book over and over to learn how it played such a part of American Slavery and the courts.
