About this Item

Very special book in excellent condition. No tears or chips, no writing, no price clip. Dustjacket protected by brand new mylar cover. Bookplate affixed to front free endpaper decorated with African motif and marked A Cultural Exchange, Cleveland, Ohio. Signed at top "For -----'s students. Virignia Hamilton." Beneath the signature of the late Virginia Hamilton is that of her husband, children's author, Arnold Adoff. Adoff's signature is always hard to decipher, but we matched it with another of his signed books. A lovely volume with stark black and white images. Traces the history of slavery in America through the time of the Emancipation Proclamation and profiles such well-known figures as Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth, but also the lesser known such as Henry Box Brown who built a crate and mailed himself to freedom. 151 pages. Indexed. We're seeking a very special home for this one. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 28258

About this title


Illus. in black-and-white. In this companion volume to the award-winning The People Could Fly, Virginia Hamilton traces the history of slavery and the Underground Railroad in America. Thirty-five inspiring stories describe ingenious escapes, desperate measures, and daring protests of former slaves.

From the Back Cover:

"A compelling book, outstanding in every way."--(pointer) Kirkus.

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
