Book Review: The Golden Pathway by Donna McDine

Raised in a hostile environment where abuse occurs daily, David attempts to break the mold and befriends the slave, Jenkins, owned by his Pa. Fighting against extraordinary times and beliefs, David leads Jenkins to freedom with no regard for his own safety and possible consequences dealt out by his Pa. Suggested age for readers: 8-12

The Golden Pathway is a well done book that would make a great addition to a classroom or home-school library or to be used by any parent who wants to help teach their child about compassion, prejudice and right verses wrong.

Slavery is not an enjoyable subject to read about but this book shows that one person can make a difference by choosing to help instead of turning a blind eye. The lesson of this book can easily be applies to situations facing our children today where it takes courage to help others who are struggling or suffering.
