The Newbery Award winner, based on a true story! Captured by slave traders when only fifteen, At-mun never forgot his roots as a prince. Nor did he ever lose his princely dignity and the courage to hold his head high. Sold at auction in America and haunted by the memory of his young sister left behind in Africa, At-mun, now Amos, began his long march to freedom. He dreamed of being free and of buying the freedom of his closest friends. By the time he was sixty years old, Amos Fortune began to see those dreams come true. 'It does a man no good to be free until he learns how to live,' he often said, and he left a legacy of freedom for himself and others that has immortalized his touching story for us all.
