A Shadow on the Household: One Enslaved Family's Incredible Struggle for Freedom

By: Bryan Prince

McClelland & Stewart, 2009

Description:
"The extraordinary story of one couples determination to free themselves and their children from slavery and make a new life in Canada. Prior to abolition in 1865, as many as 40,000 men, women, and children made the perilous trip north from enslavement in the United States to freedom in Canada. Many were aided by networks that came to be known as the Underground Railroad. The stories that emerge from the past about these journeys are truly remarkable."
