About the Author
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I knew that slaves had escaped into Canada, but I never knew anything about Buxton. Because my dad is from Ontario and most of my family lives in that province, there was a sense of pride in Canada being their 'promised land.'
I look forward to reading more books from Mr. Curtis.
