Slavery in the South was a dark chapter in American history, yet in this desperate time, a shining light of hope emerged from the darkness in the Underground Railroad.
Powered by the hearts, minds, and hands of Americans, this network of courageous men and women, safe houses, and secret messages moved close to 100,000 slaves to freedom in the first art of the 19th century.
The stories of the Underground Railroad are full of suspense, compassion, and amazing determination. Meet Harriet Tubman, the 'Moses' of her people; 'Box' Brown, who shipped himself to freedom in a crate; and how slaves passed messages and used the stars to guide themselves to freedom. 28 pages, softcover. Ages 7-14.
