Story Told Very well

this is a pretty neat story. About how they gained their freedom and was United with their father. And were saved from being separated even more. I love to hear Morgan Freeman's voice. He made the story 20 times better.

Morgan Freeman and Taj Mahal

OMG, this is an EXCELLENT production and I’m so glad to have stumbled onto it! This was totally worth the price, despite being a short story, and I’m sure I’ll listen again. Perfect for adults or kids over 5yo, and would also make a perfect in-class learning experience for students learning about the Underground Railroad. The music 🎶 by the great Taj Mahal is the ideal accompaniment to the story and to Morgan Freeman’s sterling narration. Grade: A++
