Janet Halfmann makes Lilly Ann Gunderson come alive in this beautifully illustrated, well-researched book. She learned to read, then risked her life to teach many others. An important addition to pre-civil-war black history in America. I have never heard of Lilly Ann Gunderson. We need more stories of powerful women like her. I'm interested in reading other books about black education before the Civil War.
