5.0 out of 5 stars How to Escape the Underground Railroad May 9 2002
By A Customer
Format:School & Library Binding
Cuando yo estaba leendo este libro estaba triste porque
tratan muy mal a los esclavos. A mi nunca me gustria ser
un esclavo porque en el libro dice que si tratas de escaparte
te van a cortar tus dos pies.
El mensaje que yo les etoy dando es que yo no quiero ir
donde estan los esclavos porque pueden usarme para un esclavo.
Eso es porque si yo y mis amigos tratamos de escaparnos nos
van a cortar los pies y eso no quiero que me pase.
Las buenas noticias es que el Abraham Lincoln dejo los
esclavos libres porque le daba mucha lastima y el Abraham Lincoln hizo la buena cosa porque si no lo hubiera hecho mis amigos y yo no hubieramos existido. Las malas noticias es que casi todos los esclavos se murieron.
Mi opinion del libro es que yo si recomiendo este libro a jente
porque a lo mejor ellos nunca sabian que les cortan sus pies.

As the director of an Underground Railroad museum, I am always looking for clear, concise materials for the public to use. This book is being added to our new education program, for use in elementary schools in our area. The facts are presented in an easy-to-read fashion, and anyone, adult or child, is able to pick up valuable information without being threatened by the reading level of the book. The text is not condescending in any fashion, yet moves easily enough for a 5-year-old child to sit through a reading of the entire book and ask questions provoked by the material being presented. I would recommend "If You Traveled the Underground Railroad" to anyone interested in giving children something of substance to read. We sell these books in our museum and cannot keep the supply high enough to meet the demand!

In the book, If You traveled on the Underground Railroad, it tells you how fugitives got the Underground Railroad started and what they did on the way. One question was,"Why did they call it the Underground Railroad?" "A man named Tice Davids was running from his owner that lived in Kentucky. Davids swam across a river to get to a small town in Ohio. The owner was hot on his trail. Davids suddenly disappeared whn he went around a turn. The owner searched everywhere he could have been, but he couldn't find him. He gave up and went home. When he got back, he told his other family members that he "must've went on an Underground Railroad!" The book tells you what happened if the slaves and conductors were caught. To find out more,read this book.

Four million slaves in America in the year 1860? Is that possible? Unfortunately yes. Learn about this despairing time in American history. From the code words used to make the Underground Railroad a success, where a runaway would go for help, how long would a slave have to travel to freedom, what dangers did the slaves and conductors encounter?

The depth of organization, commitment, and traveling on the Underground Railroad were enormous. Come along for this expansive journey through the Underground Railroad and be mesmerized by what the people of this era endured to achieve freedom.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Early Elementary History May 12 2012
By EmilyA - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book for early elementary students. Each individual heading discussed in this book under the topic of the underground railroad is brief and quick to the point, but informative. It gives the young child a spoonful of information they can consume and hang onto at their level. It does not drag, and leaves no room to get boring. The illustrations are beautiful and attractive for little ones. We have several of the books in this series, and we are equally pleased with them all.
