Transcript of Stealing Freedom

By: Natalie Corson Stealing Freedom The story of Stealing Freedom is told in indirect characterization. I know this because it tells the story through Ann Maria Weem's thoughts and feelings.

The setting takes you on a slaves journey on the underground railroad from Maryland,New Jersey, New York to her final destination, Dresden, Canada.
