"Fleeing for Freedom contains selected narratives from the two most important contemporary chroniclers of the Underground Railroad, Levi Coffin and William Still. Here are firsthand descriptions of the experiences of escaped slaves making their way to freedom in the North and in Canada in the years before the Civil War. George and Willene Hendrick have chosen a broad range of stories to reflect the strategies, tactics, heartbreak, and dangers - for both the slaves and the "conductors"--Of the fabled network." "In their Introduction, the Hendricks provide basic information about the scope and workings of the Underground Railroad and its impact on slaves, slaveholders, and the Northern abolitionist societies that were so heavily involved." "Fleeing for Freedom then goes on to offer personal accounts of one of the great collaborations between whites and blacks in American history. With 15 black-and-white engravings and line drawings."--Jacket
