I Thought My Soul Would Rise and Fly: The Diary of Patsy, a Freed Girl, Mars Bluff, South Carolina 1865

Amazon.com Rating:

In this latest addition to the Dear America series, two-time Coretta Scott King Honor Book recipient Joyce Hansen offers a poignant narrative about a freed slave girl during the Reconstruction Era in the South who becomes a great teacher.

"Since she had secretly learned to read and write as a slave, 12-year-old Patsy is able to document her new life and dreams now that she is free. A time that isn't often written about, the Reconstruction Period offers a fascinating milieu for the reflections of a young girl as she determines what freedom means to her. An epilogue, historical notes, photos, and maps provide additional information." -- Scholastic
