William Still's book vividly brings to light the hardships and dangers faced by those who escaped slavery via the Underground Railroad. In documenting their experiences firsthand, Still preserved the single most authentic and important record of one of America's darkest chapters, while at the same time providing abundant evidence that the human spirit can never be broken. The Underground Rail Road is a masterpiece a powerful and triumphant work that demands our attention. --Bill Cosby
Not only is the life of William Still one of the great sagas of the nineteenth century, but his Underground Rail Road is the primary record of the courage and independence of the many thousands who sought freedom. We are very fortunate to have this new edition of this important work. --John Hope Franklin
