Connor's Review 9 Feb. 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Freedom wings is about a slave boy named Corey and his family that try to escape the Harts. That is the family that owns the boy and his family. His dad is a blacksmith and his mom is a gardener for the Harts.

This story takes place in the 1857 and 1858. This story is about a boy and his family that escape from the Harts and go to the under ground railroad. I'll leave the rest for you to find out.

I would recommend this book to third grade to 5th grade readers. I think a lot of kids should read this book to because it is a good book, and it has a good author. I would definitely recommend this book to a friend because it is an amazing book. So read this book!

A young boy's diary of his journey from slavery to freedom. 14 April 2001
By Rebecca Herman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Nine-year-old Corey and his parents live in slavery on a Kentucky farm in 1857. But Corey has one thing most slaves don't have - his father, who was educated, has taught him to read and write, and to practice, Corey keeps a diary. When his father learns he is to be sold, he runs away, fleeing for the North. Corey and his pregnant mother soon follow, facing great danger because they hope to be able to live in freedom. Will Corey's family ever be reunited in freedom - or will they be separated and returned to slavery? Told through the form of Corey's journal, this book reveals what it was like for slaves who dared to escape bondage and made the dangerous journey along the Underground Railroad. I highly reccomend this book to all readers of the My America series.
Adventurous Book 28 May 2007
By Trilogy Poetry Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Freedom's Wings gives the reader some indication of life as it existed during the 1850's. The book focuses on a family and the individual member's quest for freedom from slavery. The almost daily entries by Corey Birdsong in his dairy tells the story of his father's fight against slavery to obtain his freedom, how he learns to read and write, and how his family made it to Canada after escaping and being separated on occasions. The book is exciting, and takes the reader on an adventure through swamps, caves and other places with assistance from the Underground Railroad. Other books to read: "Trilogy Moments for the Mind, Body and Soul" which includes the new Epulaeryu Poetry, "Everyday Miracles" by Okubo, and "The Language of Poetry Forms" by Tree Good..
