Annotation After the passage of the Kansas-Nebraska Act in 1855, eight-year-old Charlie's abolitionist parents decide to move their three children from Massachusetts to Kansas. As members of the New England Emigrant Aid Company, they hope to help vote that Western territory into the union as a free state. Distraught that he must leave his aging dog and beloved grandfather, Charlie is partially consoled by his grandfather, who gently and eloquently reassures him that the Kansas sky is the same sky that covers Massachusetts. Award winner. For grades 6-9.
