Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.com!

J. Cravens wrote "It attempts to strip away the myths (which are many) and point the reader to the more interesting realities surrounding the Underground Railroad, such as how informal and unorganized it was. Some of the statistics are jaw-dropping -- prepare to have some of your preconceptions turned on their head. This short read will definitely enhance one's appreciation for visiting any historic site in the USA even remotely associated with slavery."

Valerie wrote "A very quick read, recommend for anyone looking for information about this period of time that changed America."
