Summary
Dorothea Granger and her parents lost their farm due to a flood and are living with Uncle Jacob. Dorothea, a talented quilter and exceptional student, is called upon to teach at the local school until she is INSERTd by Mr. Nelson, a university trained teacher. Stern Uncle Jacob asks Dorothea to stitch a quilt for him according to his specific drawings. After their uncle dies, the family finally realizes Jacob's connection to runaway slaves and that the quilt is actually a map. Dorothea and her parents bravely continue his work.
Critique
The Sugar Camp Quilt is the 7th title in the Elm Creek Quilts series. This is a wonderful story that captures the courage, suspense, danger and joy in helping runaways reach freedom.
