(Amistad Rising A Story of Freedom) [PDF KINDLE] Ë Veronica Chambers

Stunning illustrations and the language of the text is very poetic One line of the book is It is a true story but I of the book is It is a true story but I it FICTIONAL BIOGRAPHY WITH ITS FOCUS ON biography with its focus on Cinue s legend That is okay but I think the book s hopeful theme fighting for freedom can lead to freedom could have been balanced with a little information on the world to which Cinue and his fellows returned This book tells the true story about the slave Joseph Cinue The story illustrates the horrible details about the effects of slavery on the passengers The story illustrates Joseph s eternal struggle to find freedom Chambers writing is extremely well done The book is almost like a poem but also direct and forward The slaves on the boat are seeking refuge They hope by reaching new land that they can find help Instead they Get The Opposite They Are In Prisoned As Runaway Slaves the opposite they are in prisoned as runaway slaves being able to speak a word of english they are destined for death after illing their masters Soon the tides turn when an abolitionist lawyer argues that they are free men from another country The case reaches the supreme court where John uincy Adams pleads for their lives The pictures in the book are my favorite thing about it The pictures depict the raw emotions of the slaves and their internal struggle to find freedom The book is extremely poetic in the beginning while strong and direct in the middle I would recommend this to upper class elementary school ids This is a beautifully illustrated true story of the famous ship Amistad and its idnapped passengers who were being sent like cattle to a life slavery an ocean away from their homes Bravely they fought back against their captors and took control of their own destiny Unfortunately that was only the beginning of their battle to freedom Amistad Rising is a must have addition to any school library or classroom. Ué wants only one thing freedom But what he achieves with the help of former president John uincy Adams is far far greater Joseph Cinué makes histo.
