Full Text Reviews:

Booklist - 02/01/2015 Many facts about the past become so mythologized that we end up taking them for granted, and the Good Question! series invites students to think more critically about cornerstones of American history. In Which Way to Freedom?, readers learn about the Underground Railroad, a diverse array of its conductors, and legislation that made guiding slaves to freedom dangerous. A closing section on the realities of contemporary slavery and human trafficking is especially effective. Each two-page spread pairs a few straightforward paragraphs with a visual complement, usually an illustration that resembles an oil painting. Useful both as a concise examination of American history and as a critical thinking tool. - Copyright 2015 Booklist.
