Product Description

A boy will never find a better friend than his dog, but Zeus is an old hunting dog and isn't enough to keep James from running away to freedom. But no matter how many times James tries to shake Zeus, Zeus manages to help him along and save him from slave catches, dogs, and drowning. This beautifully illustrated story is based on true events.

Publisher's Description

It's 1838, and James has made a secret plan to escape Master Graham's farm—and slavery. James kneels down to tell his dog Zeus he has to stay behind, because Zeus is simply too noisy to bring along on a dangerous nighttime journey.

But when two white men capture James soon after he runs, he's grateful his faithful hunting dog didn't obey. Zeus has followed behind, and the scrappy hound rescues James from his captors. The boy and his dog are free for the moment, but hunger, cold, slave-catching dogs, and the wide Ohio River still lie between them and freedom.

Night Running pairs a Caldecott Honor artist and an award-winning historical fiction writer in a gripping and luminously illustrated journey to freedom.
