Born into slavery young Frederick Douglass dreams of freedom not just for himself but also for his people. Yet until that day comes, his only escape is through the books that he reads, which take him to worlds far from his own where his mother has been sold to another plantation, and he even as a child must work in the fields with the adults. When a menacing overseer named Covey sees that Frederick is different from the others, he sets out to "break" the young reader. But Frederick's surprising response to Covey's brutality is an act of courage that frees forever what no person can hold captive: his spirit.
