Joseph Cinqu' is afraid he'll never see his family again. Kidnapped by slave traders and sold at auction, he finds himself chained in the hull of a cramped ship, Amistad, with more than fifty other Africans--including a few children. Cinqu' must do something. But what? In this truly epic adventure, Joseph Cinqu' wants only one thing: freedom. But what he achieves, with the help of former president John Quincy Adams, is far, far greater--Joseph Cinqu' makes history. Full-color illustrations.
