"I have only one life to lose. I had as well be killed running as die standing." The famous runaway slave Frederick Douglass eloquently expressed many slaves' feelings. Carin T. Ford's compelling history begins with the arrival of Africans in America. The grim depictions of slaves' lives leave no doubt as to why many dared risk everything to run away. Well-chosen true stories, along with quotes from real slaves, take readers back in time--traveling across the ocean in shackles, into the brutal heart of slavery, and, finally, to refuge, with the promise of freedom and the brave heroes of the Underground Railroad.
