Where most works on the Underground Railroad focus on the people involved, this unique guide explores the intricacies of travel that allowed the conductors to carry out the tasks entrusted to them.

It presents an accurate picture of just where the Underground Railroad was and how it operated, including routes and itineraries and connections between the various Railroad locations. Through information about these locations, the book takes readers from the beginnings of organized aid to fugitive slaves during the period following the American Revolution up to the Civil War.

It delineates the possible routes fugitive slaves may have taken by identifying the rivers, canals, and railroads that were sometimes used. And it shows that a network, though decentralized and variable over time and place, truly was established among Underground Railroad participants.See Toms website for information about his research and writing dealing with the Underground Railroad: undergroundrailroadconductor.com
