First published in 1872, William Still's collection of accounts and letters is a powerful testament to the trails and tribulations of fugitive slaves who used the Underground Railroad, a secret network that enabled them to escape from bondage. A 'conductor' for the railroad, Still was the son of a fugitive slave himself and a campaigner for social reform.

This abridged edition of The Underground Railroad brings to light the terrors experienced by the thousands of African-Americans who sought a better life in the northern states of America and in Canada.
