Set in 1857, a group of children work together, despite their differences, to make a change and live out their faith.

Publisher's Description

Sometimes there's a cost for doing the right thing," says Captain Norstad after standing up to a swindler. But the cost is high-the possible loss of the Christina. Will he and the other Freedom Seekers recover the stolen money before a double payment is due?

When Libby's Newfoundland dog Samson saves a deaf child from being run over by a horse and buggy, Peter becomes part of the Christina family. Then a different theft threatens Jordan's reputation. The money entrusted by his church to help fugitive slaves cross into Canada is gone! And will Jordan find his father before they're lost to each other forever?

As the Christina steams south, Caleb learns that Micah Parker has escaped toward the Mississippi River. Who will find Micah first-Jordan or the slave catchers?

Leaving the Christina at Alton, Libby, Caleb, Jordan, and Peter take up the dangerous search and receive the help of the Underground Railroad in Illinois. What does it mean to Caleb to hear what his hero, newspaper editor Elijah Lovejoy, believed about freedom of the press? How did people in the Underground Railroad live their belief that when man's law and God's law conflict, God's law is higher, more important? The law to be followed.

In The Swindler's Treasure, the fourth Freedom Seekers novel, Lois Walfrid Johnson brings into the story the thoughts of historic Illinois residents who give their reasons for being active participants in the Underground Railroad.

The Freedom Seekers series is a six-novel middle-reader set in 1857. Feel the rush of immigrants to the new land, and the dangers of the Underground Railroad in these true-to-life riverboat stories.The characters will receive a heart-warming response from readers of all ages. Adult readers will ask themselves, "Would I have been one of those who helped runaway slaves?" Lois Walfrid Johnson uses strong historical research, great writing, and wonderful storytelling to bring alive a critical time in American history.
