- The original edition, first published in Denmark, was called I am David. When first published in the US in 1963, the name was changed to North to Freedom, which led some to think it was a story of escaping slaves, and others a Holocaust story. When the movie version, "I am David," was released in 2004, the book was republished with the original title.--Matt 15:34, 30 July 2006 (PDT)
- The story is based on the work of Scottish philosopher David Hume, after whom David is named.--Matt 15:34, 30 July 2006 (PDT)
