Summary

This story is about a girl named Julilly who is a slave. Her mother, Mammy Sally, tells her to run away to Canada, where slavery is not allowed. Julilly gets moved to the Riley Plantation, where she meets a girl named Liza. Liza has a bad back because she was whipped very badly when she tried to run away. Julilly helps Liza in the field and they become very close friends. One day an abolitionist named Massa Ross comes to visit from Canada. Massa Ross tells Julilly, Liza, and two other slaves where to go when they run away. The girls leave the plantation at night with Lester and Adam, and are soon scented by bloodhounds.
