Amos Fortune - free man
By: Elizabeth Yates
Main character
Amos Fortune, captured African native, prince of his native tribe, sold as a slave in US
Minor characters
There are different “masters” and slaves that Amos meets along the way
"It does a man no good to be free until he learns how to live." These were the words of Amos Fortune, born the son of a king of the At-mun-shi tribe in Africa. When Amos was only fifteen years old, he was captured by slave traders and brought to Massachusetts, where he was sold at auction. Although his freedom had been taken, Amos never lost his dignity and courage. He dreamed of being free and of buying the freedom of his closest friends. If you want to find out if he does buy his freedom as well as his friends, you will have to read to find out.
Easy to read
Slave perspective
...what happened to his sister...
I think people who are interested in history would enjoy this book, or anyone who enjoys reading books about overcoming life’s challenges.
This connects to the real world because it is based on real events that took place long ago. I really did enjoy this book and I hope that you will give it a try! You may just like it too!
