Only Passing Through: The Story of Sojourner Truth

by Anne Rockwell

Bold, stylized watercolors make this picture book-biography shine. You'll meet Sojourner Truth and discover how she rose from slavery to become one of the most powerful people in the American abolitionist (anti-slavery) movement in the late 1800s.
