Publisher Summary
Portrays the activities of the Underground Railroad in the years prior to the Civil War, and documents the routes, lives, hardships, and accomplishments of the "conductors" and their "passengers," the escaped slaves

By ones, twos, and threes, in the years before the Civil War thousands of enslaved people slipped through the night on their way to freedom, riding the Underground Railroad. Hidden and hunted, the escape of southern slaves to the North remains a compelling event in American history. Within the pages of this book are documented, in prose and elegantly articulate photographs, examples of "stations" on the Railroad, along with images of the routes, lives, and hardships of both the "passengers" and "conductors."
