    Words are incapable of expressing how fascinating this book is. The information is delivered in an exciting, refreshing, and easy-follow-way. It is an incredible, amazing story of how the slaves used pure genius to flee from bondage to freedom.

    This is an excellent book.

    I liked this book because it was full of wonderful positive history. It helped me to understand that the slaves weren't as dumb as they have been portrayed in other endeavors. Reading this book was an eye opening experience.

    Very Outstanding Book

    I enjoyed reading this book Hiden in Plain view, I love to read about History of yester years and this was truly a ideal book. I found out so much history that I did not know was out there. The Author did a good job at presenting the story. This is a must read book. If you are seeking information on history of Black's and the history of quilts then I suggest that you read this book.

    I read this book years ago and enjoyed it so much that I bought

    I read this book years ago and enjoyed it so much that I bought copies for family members.  The book came up in conversation yesterday so I plan to buy a few more for friends.
