Book Overview

No one knows where the term Underground Railroad came from--there were no trains or tracks, only conductors who helped escaping slaves to freedom. Including real stories about passengers on the Railroad, this book chronicles slaves' close calls with bounty hunters, exhausting struggles on the road, and what they sacrificed for freedom. With 80 black-and-white illustrations throughout and a sixteen-page black-and-white photo insert, the Underground Railroad comes alive

   Written for children and adults
When I was in my mid-twenties, I started school in Ohio. It's just that I learned quite a bit of this stuff in school. History is gradually being edited and re-enforced in schools, making it seem more like a true American story. He urged Americans who want to know what the Underground Railroad was to "avoid complacency" and to "rise to the occasion." Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor, said she wants to learn more about the Boston Tea Party. Yes, there is a second series, this one with even more heart.
   What Was the Underground Railroad
I'm delighted that Dr. Goin has agreed to do so, said Dr. Paul LiCalsi, director of the NIH's Ames Research Center in California. It gives a surface understanding and you can branch out and dig deeper, he said.
   My 9 Year Old Daughter Loved it! (She is writing this review)
I've always liked the movies about Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass and Brown. Like the pictures, I also liked the music video. Underground railroad enthusiast Robert Pennicott said he learned about the railroad industry from his father. In "The Fall of the U.S. Civil Rights" Thomas Jefferson wrote, "There was a safe place for slaves." Everyone that has read it has a story. I wish the slaves had not had to go through that, Mr. Shelby said.
   The Underground Railroad -- told by those who lived through it!
I believe that 8-10 year olds will love this book, but it deserves to be a family read book. Some of the descriptions will need explanation, plus it's an excellent tool for discussion on that most traumatic time in America --a time period we're still dealing with, he said.
   Distorted history.
This could have been an incredible story, but the author has been influenced by the 1619 Project, he said. They include references to abducted Africans being held by the kidnappers. They were not kidnapped, they were sold by other Africans who had kidnapped them to either have for slaves themselves or sell to slave traders, the doctor said. The entire history of slavery is horrific, but it is wrong to rewrite history to fit an agenda, Rush said in a statement. Underground railroad was an example of people of different races working together to free those who should have been enslaved, Williams said. It's so sad that history is being distorted to fit an agenda, Graham said.
   Great book great price
She loved it, the show's creator and executive producer said. Very informative book. Great for school reports, homework help, and even a few fun facts! I ended up buying a lot more of them. Will continue buying, he said.
   Every home with a child should have this book.
My daughter did her class presentation on 'Living Biblically' at the Christian Homeschoolers' class. No matter what your skin complexion your child will learn a lot of information and vocabulary. Along with the book comes maps and pictures of conductors.
   Well Written and Illustrated! Should Be Included in Every Reading Curriculum
Exceptionally written and illustrated by Robert Hein. A great historical account of the Civil War. One of the best books in the series. It's great for both children and adults. A quick read, but full of fascinating facts and figures. This book is a great resource for teachers, homeschoolers and parents. It should be included in every reading and social studies curriculum. In addition, I continue to buy copies to share with my colleagues and friends.
   Another winner of a book
The whole series of books is just wonderful, Diana said. Pick a topic that your child is or might be intrested in and these books draw them right in. My son has been reading them since second grade and he still anxiously awaits them as I buy new ones. They are by far his favorite series and in my opinion so much better than the other silly grossobnoxious series out there.
   I just love these books.
I have read some of the most complex books on African American history, and our placement in this country, Raymond said. The second book, "The Fifth," is a collection of short stories by Wolford that break it down in a few pages. I love the way it looks on the screen.
