Abstract:

Tobin met Ozella Williams in the Old Market Building in Charleston, South Carolina, and learned of the oral tradition and coded quilts used to navigate escapes on the Underground Railroad.

Notes:

by mpersyn (WorldCat user on 2008-07-07)

There is considerable question as to whether this book is pure story or an accurate depiction of the use of quilts in the underground railroad. So far, there is no outside evidence backing up the story.
