Publisher's Summary

It was everywhere. You couldn’t talk about the revolution without using the word freedom in the same breath. But Gideon Jackson knew that freedom meant something different if your skin was black. Fast’s fictional account of the post Civil War era takes us into the life of Gideon Jackson, a black man, newly freed, and determined to make a difference.

An important work of fiction.

While a fictional account of reconstruction, Freedom Road touches on truths that occurred all over the south in the years after the Civil War. There are many tales from the Reconstruction era that are told in our history classes, but the most important ones will still remain to be included. Freedom Road is a great start for someone exploring this time period of American history.

Being African American this was a very hard book to read. I felt so many emotions. 100 Yeats was not long ago.
