Both educational and beautiful, this is a biography of a figure we have all heard about, but maybe never considered the journey her life took and the influence she had beyond the Underground Railroad. For children and adults, Harriet will leap off the page as a real person and not just a historical figure.

I have heard of a landWhere the imagination has no fencesWhere what is dreamed one nightIs accomplished the next day

In the late 1880s, signs went up all around America -- land was free in the Oklahoma territory. And it was free to everyone: Whites, Blacks, men and women alike. All one needed to stake a claim was hope and courage, strength and perseverance. Thousands of pioneers, many of them African-Americans newly freed from slavery, headed west to carve out a new life in the Oklahoma soil.

Richly illustrated by Coretta Scott King Award Honor -- recipient Floyd Cooper and complete with an author's endnote, I Have Heard of a Land commemorates the strength of the African-American pioneers. It is a hymn to liberty and unity, an ode to a land where what can be dreamed can be accomplished.

Wonderful and important story that shares our history in an interesting way. Got it for my daughter, and then bought more to give as gifts.

Told with lyrical poetry against gorgeous illustrations, I Have Heard of a Land tells the story of the first black Americans to settle in Oklahoma. With hope, hard-work, and determination, they created a life of freedom and prosperity. The story focuses on a single female, and her dreams of a place of her own. Worth reading, even for the pictures alone!

I bought this book as a memento of Oklahoma's centennial celebration for my adult daughter. She wants to be a children's book illustrator herself and has an art degree, so she is very selective about books like this. This book meets all her and my criteria for a beautiful children's book. It has artistically beautiful illustrations and a very positive message. It appeals to adults and children and to all races. The characters in this book are African-American, but the story is universal, and the values expressed are timeless and universal. For me it was very nostalgic when it talked of pioneer times and farm living, especially the brush arbor church services. It also spoke with reverence of a beautiful land, which I think Oklahoma is. This book might be a little advanced for pre-schoolers to listen to, but first grade and up will enjoy the story whether they can read it themselves or need someone to read it to them. I think the activities mentioned in the story would make a very good starting point for many more stories and activities for young children. It makes me, a native Oklahoman, proud of our state and people, especially knowing the auther and illustrator are both Oklahomans, too. So if the only pictures of Oklahoma you have ever seen are the old dust bowl days or the Oklahoma City bombing, you will be surprised by the beauty of our state. But it is the people who settled this state and who remained to make it a great state who earned us the title of The Heartland.
