The Golden Pathway, a tale of compassion and courage.

The Golden Pathway, written by Donna M. McDine and illustrated by KC Snider, is an inspiring story of a young boy, named David, who helps his father's slave escape to freedom.  Day after day, David watches from a distance as his alcoholic father brutally and mercilessly beats their slave, Jenkins, who is just a boy himself.  David knows all too well that the beatings will only continue and becomes concerned that Jenkins may not survive the onslaught of physical abuse.  Eventually David finds a way, with the aid of those operating the underground railroad, to help Jenkins escape his life of slavery and affliction
