Overview

North Star to Freedom: The Story of the Underground Railroad by Gena Kinton Gorrell, Clement Oubrerie, Lawrence David

In this fascinating and thorough account, Gena K. Gorrell movingly describes the history of the Underground Railroad, from the origins of slavery through the Civil War and beyond. She depicts the passage from Africa on desperately crowded slave ships, the station-by-station development of the powerful Railroad routes to the northern United States and Canada, and the immense challenges runaways faced once they reached freedom. Throughout the narrative, Gorrell highlights the pivotal roles played by various people of the era: those who became famous and those who remain too little known.
