amazing tale, simply and strongly told
on October 15, 2015
Stunning tale of the life of a heroine of the anti-slave movement, a remarkable woman of action who led many "trains" in the Underground Railroad. A true cry for freedom, led by someone who just felt the cause of freedom in her very being. I liked the way her personal life story was interspersed with snippets from the political and military story of the time.
Indeed, one of the remarkable lessons of the book is that in spite of the efforts of the slavers, the slaves did have an idea of the social changes in the outside world, and acted accordingly. Not much on her personal feelings, probably because we do not know. For her, actions spoke louder than words.
