Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Veronica Bartles
Part of the "Stories in American History" series, this book tells the story of the Underground Railroad, from the early days of slavery in America, to the Civil War and beyond. Sawyer begins with an account of one slave's escape to freedom in Canada with the help of William Wells Brown. The narrative then skips back in time to give an overview of slavery in America and the beginnings of a system where compassionate people helped slaves escape to freedom. Sawyer explores the reasons behind the slave trade as well as the many motives behind those involved in the Underground Railroad. Sawyer weaves the story from accounts of real people, some famous, like Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman, and some relatively unknown. Sawyer pulls from diary accounts, runaway slave notices and other historical documents, giving the story a wonderful depth and dimension. A timeline and index in the back of the book make it easy to navigate the pages when searching for specific information about the Underground Railroad. Chapter notes and lists of books and websites for further reading make this book a terrific jumping-off point for research. Perfect for a school library or anyone fascinated by American history.
