It's very hard to find a story about African Americans that does not include slavery or abuse. This came close as the man Stephen had a job and was a successful guide even though a slave. I wanted to find a story that had a plot with characters who were free so I could retell it to elementary age kids during Black History month. I found about 2 - too bad there are not more.
