Summary
Describes the history of slave uprisings and runaway slaves, including the Underground Railroad. The barks of the bloodhounds grew louder as the man ran through the swamps. This was what many slaves had to go through in order to escape to the North. Others received help on the Underground Railroad. Still others fought instead of running. Ann E. Eskridge puts the reader in the midst of the trials and tribulations of these brave Americans
