Amos Fortune, Free Man 

 by Elizabeth Yates

 

Amos Fortune, Free Man by Elizabeth Yates is based on a true story and is a Newbury classic. Amos was brutally taken from his family and land, and sold as a slave in New England. His master was kind, as masters go, taught him to read, taught him of God, and paid him a small salary so that he could buy his own freedom in time. Unfortunately, before that could happen, his master died and Amos was bought by another master - a tanner. This master, too, was kind. He taught Amos everything about tanning. He eventually set Amos free after setting him up in his own business. Through perseverance and hard work, Amos saved up money to buy the freedom of four more slaves, eventually becoming a respected member of his community and church, in a day when such things were largely unheard of. A sad and beautiful story, depicting the evils of slavery - even in the "best" of circumstances. This book makes an excellent addition to any study of American history.

There is a Progeny Press study guide available for this book.
