Seven Miles to Freedom

By Book Scoops

The meticulously researched book does an excellent job chronicling Smalls’ life from birth to his training as a wheelman and eventual escape with fellow crewmen and their loved ones aboard the Planter. Seven Miles to Freedom is a fascinating story of adventure and bravery that will keep you turning page after page. Duane Smith’s illustrations are well done . . . they do compliment the text well. I really enjoyed the afterward and learning about his role as a congressman. . . . I highly recommend this book for history buffs and anyone interested in a true story of bravery and courage. &mdashBook Scoops
