Hannah is a young girl on a southern plantation. A slave. When Papa says it's time to run to freedom, Hannah is frightened. But she has something precious, something Mama helped her sew before she died. It's a patchwork quilt, and the patterns on its squares offer the clues that Hannah and Papa will need to guide them along the Underground Railroad.

A fictionalized account of historically accurate events, this remarkable book tells the story of a brave father and daughter who chose the dangerous journey to Canada and freedom. It is a story of courage, determination, and hope.
