Note: 
Mickey Schwerner, Andrew Goodman, and James Cheney are part of the pantheon of Civil Rights workers who gave their lives for a just cause. This short and easy to read novel begins at the crucial point in their lives, when they are being chased by Mississippi police and being told to pull over. Their decision determines their fate: they were found beaten and murdered about 40 days after their arrest. Personal information about the three young men is integrated with a suspenseful story that informs readers about the struggle for Civil Rights in America and the part that Jews and Blacks played in it. Compelling!
