Each chapter starts with an account from a runaway who succeeded in escaping to freedom. From there we get a mini history on the state going back to its territory status. There's also detail info on these who helped runaways as well as ill-fated attempts by (Kentuckian) slave hunters to raid the black communities of Michigan in search of runways.
Like "The Underground Railroad on the Western Frontier" this is a well written & researched book filled with photos & illustrations. The high price of both may be a turn-off to some. Yet both are great books to look for if you're interested in the Underground Railroad.
I purchased this book over a year ago. I use it as references to locations and in my genealogical research. I am a direct descendent to one of the people mentioned in the book and the book has provided me with leads across a roadblock that I had been struggling with for a few years.
BUY THE BOOK you won't be disappointed.

By comparison,not a great deal about the Western route.
If Lewis Clark is mentioned, I missed it.
This is a very important book for anyone interested in the history of slavery and abolition in the U.S. and especially in the activities of the Underground Railroad. Read morePublished on September 8, 2010 by Bizzy Reading
