Annotation Inspiring, true-life stories of the Underground Railroad put modern-day travelers in touch with the lives of men and women who set out against all odds in search of freedom from slavery. These stories include not just the most famous of the region's escaped slaves, Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass, but also many lesser-known figures whose journeys out of bondage speak volumes about the timeless themes of courage, love, family, and faith. The journeys in the book begin on the wide Choptank River in Cambridge, Maryland and then wander along scenic backroads leading through history-laden towns such as Easton, St. Michaels, Denton, Chestertown, Centreville, Bucktown, Madison, Galena, and Chesapeake City, and into Delaware through Dover, Middletown, Seaford, New Castle, and Wilmington. Some strong language.
