Growing up a slave in South Carolina, Robert Smalls always
dreamed of the moment freedom would be within his grasp. Now that
moment was here.
Robert stood proudly at the Planter's wheel. Only seven miles of
water lay between the ship and the chance of freedom in Union
territory. With precision and amazing courage, he navigated past
the Confederate forts in the harbor and steered the ship toward the
safety of the Union fleet. Just one miscalculation would be deadly,
but for Robert, his family, and his crewmates, the risk was worth
Seven Miles to Freedom is the compelling account of the daring
escape of Robert Smalls, a slave steamboat wheelman who became one
of the Civil War s greatest heroes. His steadfast courage in the
face of adversity is an inspiring model for all who attempt to
overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges."
