for Across the Wide River by Stephanie Reed
The red brick home of Rev. John Rankin is a beacon--the first northern stop on the Underground Railroad. Across the Ohio River in Kentucky, every slave knows to look for it. They have heard that if they reach that house, they will never be captured. "Across the Wide River" tells the true story of the selfless sacrifices one Christian family made to help runaway slaves reach freedom.
