This story is about a family that transports a slave family to Canada on the Underground Railroad before the Civil War. It begins with the son accidentally finding the hidden slaves and the father explaining the Underground Railroad to him, which is not a railroad but a path to freedom for slaves. His dad explains to him that even though he is breaking the law and it is bad, slaves deserve to be free.

Follow the Drinking Gourd” is a song the slaves would sing expressing their desire to be free. Slaves followed the drinking gourd, which was the Big Dipper to the North to Canada when they ran away to freedom. $5/person
