Only Passing Through: The Story of Sojourner Truth

Sojourner Truth traveled the country in the latter half of the 19th century, speaking out against slavery. Sojourner's simple yet powerful stories of her hardships helped people to understand the hideous truth about slavery.

Only Passing Through is a powerful picture book biography of how a slave woman transformed herself into one of the most powerful voices of the abolitionist movement. Anne Rockwell combines her lifelong love of history and storytelling to create an inspiring portrait of an American icon.
