Since childhood, Frederick had a sacred thirst for freedom. It was in his mind all the time and he questioned the rights of his master to own his actions and thoughts. But how to escape the bondage? It was a formidable task, but one he was willing to try. Will he succeed and by which method?

All these questions plague him every night in the little cot where he slept. Until he came up with a plan and share it with some friends so they could join him. Oh, but what a surprise, when one of them snitch on them... A fatal blow. Even more deeply felt than the angry strikes from his master. It would be years before he could try to escape again. Will he succeed this time? 

Sacred Thirst for Liberty is a must-read. It will keep you guessing. Frederick writes with extraordinary passion and does not shy away to share his most personal feelings and thoughts. You will feel that you are experiencing slavery right along with him. A harrowing, dramatic story which belongs in every library.
