Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 081173143X, Paperback)

Detailed maps trace the routes runaway slaves followed Explores the impact of geography, transportation, free blacks, and members of religious congregations on the Underground Railroad Information on modern roads and landmarks allows readers to retrace escape paths

In a companion volume to his highly regarded Underground Railroad in Pennsylvania (0-8117-1629-5), William J. Switala focuses on the escaped-slave network in the eastern border states of Delaware and Maryland, as well as the region that became West Virginia in 1863. Using fresh and extensive research, Switala fills a glaring void in the historical record of this important topic. Full of vivid anecdotes and lucid reconstructions, this book brings the Underground Railroad to life for the modern reader
