       In the winter of 1852, a group of Philadelphia abolitionists dedicated to assisting runaway slaves formed a new assistance group in Underground Railroad-the General Vigilance Committee. William Still, himself a son of slaves, was named its secretary and executive director. Deeply moved by the stories of the fugitive slaves he helped conduct northward, Still took his committee record-keeping to a higher level. He wrote down, in eloquent narrative form, every detail of their stirring, often heartbreaking histories.

Second only to the great Harriet Tubman in the number of freedom-seeking 'passengers' he conducted through the Underground Railroad, Still let the words of former slaves speak for themselves. In his journals, he painstakingly reproduced vivid accounts he heard from their very lips, and he added excerpts from letters, newspapers, and legal documents to the already arresting biographical sketches, creating unforgettable portraits of the slaves' deadly struggles, brutal hardships, and narrow escapes.

When the Civil War ended and slavery was abolished, William Still published his journals as The Underground Railroad. It is considered the most complete firsthand account ever written of the men, women, and children who rode the legendary 'Railroad' to freedom. This edition includes a new Introduction and 20 illustrations from the original publication. Reprint of the Porter & Coates, Philadelphia, 1872, edition. 304 pages, softcover.
