It's 1838, and James has made a secret plan to escape Master Graham's farmÑand slavery. James kneels down to tell his dog Zeus he has to stay behind, because Zeus is simply too noisy to bring along on a dangerous nighttime journey.

But when two white men capture James soon after he runs, he's grateful his faithful hunting dog didn't obey. Zeus has followed behind, and the scrappy hound rescues James from his captors. The boy and his dog are free for the moment, but hunger, cold, slave-catching dogs, and the wide Ohio River still lie between them and freedom.

Night Running pairs a Caldecott Honor artist and an award-winning historical fiction writer in a gripping and luminously illustrated journey to freedom.
