Joshua, a runaway slave, outwits his hunters and becomes a free man. He joins a wagon train heading west. He needs to earn enough money to buy his siblings' freedom and avenge his mother's death. His life is changed because of the people he meets, the experiences he has, and the life lessons he learns during the journey as he grows from a brave boy into a mature, courageous young man.
