Great narrative

I am an actor and I was doing a play about Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad. This book helped tremendously!

As one who lives in an area where much of the Underground Railroad action took place, I found the material to be very interesting. There are rough edges however and maybe that was the authors intent but the questions of why to Canada and what happened to those who went there, why were Quakers so involved in running the railroad, why was it able to run as freely as it did? A relative lived in a farmhouse in PA that had a basement set up as a station for the railroad. This book helped put in perspective the purpose of that basement. The book is a great read and introspection into human perseverance and determination to live as free people.

After visiting Ohio and had the pleasure of visiting John Rankin's house in Ripley i became facinated in the story of the underground railway and the people who aided the slaves to freedom. what i liked about this book is that the chapters didnt go on and on where some books almost force you in to your mind wandering off to elesewhere. nicely written and to keep you interested it discusses and describes different people and their tales of involvement
