Where are the Quilts?
Bound for Canaan. This book was about the who and the where of the Underground Railroad in this country prior to the Civil War and the Emancipation of the enslaved. The structure was narrative spaning a timeline that included the politics and anthropology of this changing culture. There were several main characters that made this like reading a novel. One pulled out an Atlas to recall the geography.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Words were used that described the uniqueness of this decade: probity; bloviate; peripatetic; victuals; galimaufry; conestoga; blaize. Especially blaize-page 309 describing the tying of knots in string to follow as those who stole themselves escaped into the "underground." But where in this book are the QUILTS (Hidden in Plain View, Dobard/Torbin) that were tied with the design of informing a route?
