In the meantime, selling frog legs and firewood will have to do. Then Pa becomes sheriff of lawless Goldtown, and Jem worries. How many outlaws will use Pa’s new badge for target practice?

From the Author:
Goldtown’s in trouble. When Jem is caught in a miners’ riot, he learns the worst: the Midas mine has run out of gold. A new vein deep underground shows promise, but an old mine nearby must be reclaimed for an air shaft. However, Jem’s friend Wu Shen and the other Chinese are working those abandoned diggings, and they refuse to give up their lawful claim–not even to save the town. Soon, Jem’s sheriff father is ordered to evict the Chinese or lose his job. Then Will, the mine owner’s son, comes up with a plan. If Jem goes along with it, Pa can keep his job, and the Midas will get its air shaft. Sounds like a great idea . . . until Will’s risky plan leads to disaster deep inside an old mine.

Escape into the Night Book 1

From the Publisher:
“I want a never-give-up family,” Libby Norstad tells her widowed father, captain of the steamboat Christina. “I want a family that believes in me, even when I’m not perfect. A family that sticks together, even though it’s hard.”

“We can be that family for each other,” Pa promises. “And Caleb and the other people who work on the Christina will be our larger family.”

But Libby has lived with a wealthy aunt since her mother died and discovers a different world. In 1857, when rivers were the highways of the time, Libby, her father, and their friends face life-and-death questions still crucial today: Who can I trust? What does it mean to put my faith in God? To live my belief in the freedoms sought in the Declaration of Independence? And how can I help others, even at great cost?

Soon Libby discovers the secret work of 14-year-old Caleb, a conductor in the Underground Railroad. Next, a fugitive slave named Jordan takes refuge on the Christina. Then another family, Emma and little Henry, pushes toward a choice. Will her journey to compassion help her become a Freedom Seeker?

From the golden age of steamboats, the rush of immigrants to new land, and the dangers of the Underground Railroad come true-to-life stories of courage, integrity, and suspense. In Escape into the Night, the first Freedom Seekers novel, as well as others in the 1857 series, Lois Walfrid Johnson uses strong historical interest to bring alive a critical time in American history.

Race for Freedom Book 2

From the Publisher:
Late at night, as the Christina puts out into the Mississippi River, Caleb and Libby keep watch on deck. Close by, the runaway slave, Jordan, creeps forward without a sound. Drawing near the lantern, he stops, as if afraid to enter the circle of light.

On the streets above them no one stirs. Then a dark shape steps from the shadows.

Jordan moans. “It’s Riggs!” (The slave-trader.) The cruelest man Caleb knows. Jordan’s owner stepping out, so they know he’s on their trail.

From that moment the Freedom Seekers can never forget that because of a fugitive slave law Jordan can be taken back into slavery, even from a free northern state. Nor can they forget that if Captain Norstad is caught hiding a fugitive he can lose the Christina. Then Elsa, a new-found immigrant friend, faces illness and possible death.

Will Libby’s need for courage bring her to the Lord who promises, “Do not fear, for I am with you”? Can the Freedom Seekers live the courage that offers life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness to every person? Can they go beyond fear to put that courage into practice?

As steamboats race for St. Paul, stakes are high. To escape capture, Jordan makes a mighty leap. In a time when captains did not stop for a man overboard, will Jordan survive his fall into icy waters?

Midnight Rescue Book 3

From the Publisher:
Long ago Jordan’s parents named him in the belief that one day he would lead his people across the Jordan River into the Promised Land of freedom. Now Jordan, as a newly escaped fugitive, plans how to rescue his mother, two sisters, and a brother from slavery.

But has an escaped convict crept aboard the Christina? Did he overhear Libby’s talk with Caleb-her giving away of a life-or-death secret?

Sick at heart, Libby knows she has failed her friends. Not only has she risked Jordan’s safety, she has endangered the mission to rescue his family. Will she ever be trusted to work in the Underground Railroad? If she takes part, can she be a Freedom Seeker who holds steady to go beyond fear?

Soon after Caleb and Jordan leave the Christina, a log raft on the Mississippi breaks up in front of the steamboat. With everything seeming to go against the rescue, will Jordan’s practical skills and ability to recognize God leading make the difference between life and death? Or will the escaped prisoner rob Jordan, not only of his freedom, but also the freedom of his family?

In Midnight Rescue, the third Freedom Seekers novel, as well as others in the series, Lois Walfrid Johnson ends each chapter with a cliffhanger to build interest, valuable insights, and suspense.
