Description
Joyce Hansen's Coretta Scott King Honor Book I Thought My Soul Would Rise and Fly is now back in print with a gorgeous new package!

In this Coretta Scott King Honor Book, Patsy, an orphaned slave with a bad leg and a quiet nature, is considered slow by the Davis family. But Patsy's smart-smart enough to learn to read and write on the sly. After the Civil War ends and slavery is abolshed, Patsy believes Master Davis's promise to pay the former house slaves and to provide education for the slave children. But when the master ignores this promise to establish a school, and the Freedmen's Bureau cannot provide a teacher, Patsy steps in to teach the students to read and write.

Hansen fills Patsy's diary with courage, conviction, and hope as she strives toward freedom.
