A must read to understand the institution of slavery and the Underground Railroad in the United States. People, events, and ideas are presented in full with color illustrations, maps, and diagrams to help the young reader grasp this part of our nation's history. The final pages are dedicated to learning more about present day slavery still practiced in parts of the world including South Asia and West Africa.
If you have a child who is in elementary school and wants or needs to learn more about The Underground Railroad and Slavery, I would highly recommend this book. It was well written, discussed the the Underground Railroad in detail, along with code words that were used helping enslaved people escape. There was also a nice section on Who worked on the Underground Railroad, and history on each person. A great brief history reminder for myself!
I believe this is a very important book for everyone to read. It is filled with information we all should take the opportunity to know, so this is a book not just for children. The author tells about the Underground Railroad and its main courageous leaders to freedom for slaves. It's a very interesting story and well told. The illustrations are wonderful.
