On the Trail of John Brown's Body: Young Heroes of History #2
Alan N. Kay
Drawn into the slavery crisis, David and his cousin George Adams are caught between two worlds. The only person who can help David is his father, John, who lives in the dangerous, violent territory nicknamed “Bleeding Kansas.” David runs away from his uncle’s home in Boston to join his father. George and George’s father are sent to follow him. Unfortunately, neither boy knows that for years, David’s parents have been involved with the infamous John Brown and his violent plans to end slavery.
On the Trail of John Brown’s Body is an adventure/mystery story that finds David and George becoming more and more involved with Brown’s secret plot to overthrow the Federal government and start a slave uprising throughout the South. The pair are followed, threatened, and even attacked by both abolitionist and slave supporters.
Finally, when they learn the truth of John Brown’s raid the family itself becomes involved in a desperate struggle of life and death as each takes different sides in the heated slavery debate. Whether the family will be able to help John Brown in his bold plan or warn the town of Harpers Ferry in time to stop him is the question!
