Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
The spring of 1840, snow still lay on the ground as Ann Williams, Noah Swift Hawk, and their family attempt to escape the consequences of Noah and Ann's interracial marriage. Folks don't cotton to their disregard of the law put into place to keep the white race pure. Judge Daniel Hall even has a bullet waiting for Noah and Ann, or at the very least, a whip. The family runs for their lives. They attempt a very risky avenue of escape from Little Rock. Dangerous terrain, desperate and vicious animals and people hamper their exodus. Unable to travel far from Little Rock, for months they hide in the forest beside Fletcher Creek, in the new slave state of Arkansas. They receive help from people, who themselves are barely surviving. Who escapes? Who does death claim?
