Five accounts of black slaves who managed to escape to freedom during the period preceding the Civil War.

Publishers Description


Eliza and her baby, running across the ice. Selena and Cornelia Jackson, masquerading as boys. Henry Box Brown, shipping himself north in a wooden crate. Jane Johnson, risking everything to testify against her former owner in court. Ellen Craft, posing as her husband's owner.

Escaping from slavery against overwhelming odds, these people were helped by courage, ingenuity, and the informal network known as the Underground Railroad. Here are their gripping stories, told by Doreen Rappaport, illustrated by Charles Lilly, and accompanied by information about slave laws of the era, key Underground Railroad leaders, and a bibliography.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I think that this was an interesting book to read  Jul 24, 2000
I am a 7th grader who was assigned this book to read as a summer reading project by my future teacher. After reading many different books on the life experiments of slaves durning the Civil War, I found this book interesting. It is about five slaves and how they managed to escape slavery. It show how brave each one of these people were in their own way. It also show how the Underground Railroad worked to help them in their escape of the in human lives that they were living along with the abuse that they suffered. The most interesting person of the five was Eliza, she also was fighting for the freedom of her baby Caroline. I think that the danger of the escape was harder for her because she was more worried about her daughter and what could happen to both of them if they were to get caught.This book kept me interested because it tells of the feeling that each one of the slaves is feeling and how they handle the next travel from one place to another. I liked the reading of the adventures that they had and how in the end they needed to adjust to a new kind of life.
