Product Details


“This book…is good history…digging deeply into the roots of slavery as well as discussing the important figures in the abolitionist movement and the Underground Railroad system. Numerous photographs, a timeline of critical events, source notes and a bibliography augment the always interesting text.”
The Globe and Mail

“The story of the underground railroad is as action-packed and full of intrigue, heroes and villains as any modern-day work of fiction.”
Today’s Parent
