Originally founded by runaway slaves, Lakestown, New Jersey, is a black community populated by people from a variety of classes and creeds. When plans for a new highway are routed past a nearby wealthy white suburb but threaten the heart of Lakestown, its citizens are inspired by their Under-ground Railroad heritage and devise a series of hilarious plans to thwart the construction and to preserve their town and way of life. Unavailable for 30 years, this reprint is more relevant now than ever.Kristin Lattany has written nine novels, including the highly acclaimed children’s book The Soul Brothers and Sister Lou. A teacher of English at the University of Pennsylvania for 23 years, she lives in New Jersey.
