Run away home

by McKissack Pat


In 1888 Alabama, young Sarah Jane witnesses an Apache boy jumping off a train headed for an Indian reservation, and a life he does not want. She hopes he'll run far -- everyone deserves to be free. Instead she finds him hiding in her family's barn dying of swamp fever. Sarah Jane and her mother nurse the boy, but realize they'll have to turn him over to authorities.
