Publisher's summary

The Underground Railroad: miles and miles of railroad "lines" without so much as a track; "passengers" with a will of iron and steel, but little more than that; "station-masters", "agents", and "conductors" whose signs, secrets, and codes stake the trail to freedom.

It's a tale of death-defying courage against the odds. Best of all it's true - and BackPax takes you there, following the North Star from slavery to freedom. So hop aboard the Underground Railroad from Colonial Williamsburg through Harpers Ferry (site of John Brown's historic raid), to Farmington, Connecticut (from which the Amistad mutineers made their way back home to Africa), up to "Heaven's Door", the Canadian border. And, take a side-track to Auburn, N.Y., to meet a descendant of Harriet Tubman who personally knew that most famous "conductor" of them all.
