In this story inspired by the many African American pioneers who forged new communities in the Midwest following the Civil War, young Dede’s hardworking family leaves behind a life of indentured servitude for the promise of free farmland in the heart of the prairie. The historic town of Nicodemus, Kansas, springs to life through expressive artwork done in softly fluid lines and hues, conveying all of the hope and joy of the movement.
