Summary
Author Christianson tells the engaging story of captured Virginia fugitive slave Charles Nalle and those who helped him on his way to freedom. Nalle had been aided in his initial escape from slavery by the Underground Railroad, captured, and then forcibly freed by Harriet Tubman and others in New York in 1860. It's a well-written, well-researched story that says as much about the tormented race relations in slavery-era America as it does about the men and women who helped him.
