20 Bordewich, Fergus M. Bound For Canaan: The Underground Railroad and the War for the Soul of America
New York Amistad 2006 0060524316 / 9780060524319 1st Printing Soft Cover Near Fine Octavo 
The 19th-century network of committed and inventive people who worked assiduously to help fugitive slaves reach freedom across vast expanse of terrain was known as the "Underground Railroad"--borrowing its terminology of "conductor," "passenger," and "stations" from America's great railway project of the time. Fergus Bordewich puts human faces to this textbook story, profiling many outstanding individuals who, at great risk to themselves, established safe houses and passage. He explores how the Underground Railroad was both an expression of self-determination by African-Americans, and also a collaborative effort that included many anti-slavery Americans and groups. In that sense, it was a model of cooperation that later generations would emulate. While it was clandestine in nature, the Underground Railroad had significant political impact on both North and South, while it saved tens of thousands of lives.
