For the first 15 years of his life Amos Fortune was At-mun, prince of an African tribe. He always believed that, as a future king, he lives to serve his people. But At-mun's life is turned upside down when he and many of his people are captured and brought to the United States to be sold as slaves.At-mun is purchased by a kind Quaker family, who give him the name Amos and welcome him into their home. Under the care of the Copelands, Amos learns to read and speak English, and learns about their God. When Amos comes to understand that as a child of God his royal heritage has been restored, his life is transformed.

For the rest of his life Amos continues the work he believes he was born to do: serve his people. Through the many turns his life takes Amos shows a trust and assurance in God, and though he works to achieve his own freedom and the freedom of others, he knows that true freedom can only come from faith in God. Biographical. Based on a true story.This reproducible study guide is recommended for grades 5th-7th.
