What would it be like to have one of the most famous escaped slaves in the world for a father, and the strong woman who held their home life together for a mother? It would mean being used to all kinds of people showing up on the family's doorstep any time of day or night and the worse the weather, the better. It would also mean watching your every word and step when you're away from home. When Frederick and Anna Douglass' eleven-year-old son Lewis hears his father tell the family they are moving from their gracious home on Alexander Street to a homestead on the edge of Rochester, New York, he feels shocked at leaving their lively neighborhood. But when his father tells him he must learn to drive a team of horses to help with the move, Lewis is at a loss for words at the thought of this daunting task and has no choice but to agree.

About the Author:

Special Delivery: From One Stop to Another on the Underground Railroad, is Rose O Keefe's latest effort to show what daily life was like in the 1850s, and what life was like in Rochester for families active on the Underground Railroad.
Rose has written four books to promote pride in local history and forge connections among those who have called Rochester and Western New York home. They are: Frederick and Anna Douglass in Rochester, NY: Their Home Was Open to All (History Press, 2013) Historic Genesee Country (History Press, 2010), Southeast Rochester (Arcadia 2006); and Rochester's South Wedge (Arcadia, 2005).
Rose moved to Rochester, New York, after graduating from SUNY at Potsdam. After exploring the Genesee River Valley and Finger Lakes region on camping outings with friends and family, she became inspired to learn as much as she could about this beautiful area, and pass that love on to others.
