No one knows where the term "Underground Railroad" came from--there were no train tracks, only abolitionist "conductors" who helped bring an estimated 100,000 slaves to freedom through elaborate routes that included "stations," safe houses where fugitives could rest before moving on, and a system of codes and signals used to identify friend from foe. Including real stories about "passengers" on the "Railroad," this book chronicles slaves' close calls with bounty hunters, and more. In Spanish.
