Eleven-year-old Eliza Scott isn't a slave, but she's not free, either. For one thing, her father, the famous Dred Scott, is suing his master for her family's freedom. But Eliza is also caught up in other overwhelming struggles-- a devastating cholera epidemic, the wrath of a rich and resourceful slave catcher, and the worst fire in St. Louis history. Will Eliza be willing and able to pay the price for freedom? Kansas State Reading Circle Recommended Books

Eleven year old Eliza Scott has a lot to live for. Eliza and her family will soon be free. She is learning to read and write at a secret school. And she has a new friend she can share her dreams with. But when Eliza is confronted by vicious slave catchers, the spread of cholera, and a devastating fire, she is forced to come to terms with what it really takes to be on her own. Will she ever be able to fulfill her childhood dreams?


Michaela MacColl and Rosemary Nichols delve deep into the history of the Dred Scott decision and pre-Civil War America to tell Eliza Scott's riveting coming-of-age story. Freedom's Price is the second in the Hidden Histories series about children and little-known events in American history.
