Cover image for The underground railroad : a novelThe Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead

“Stolen bodies working stolen land. It was an engine that did not stop, its hungry boiler fed with blood.” Cora escapes from slavery in Georgia, passing through South Carolina, North Carolina & Tennessee on the way to Indiana. She eludes Ridgeway, a slavecatcher pursuing her, other bounty hunters, informers and lynch mobs — with help along the way from “underground railroad” workers, both black and white, willing to risk their lives to save hers. Throughout the journey, dreams connect to generations past and project to a troubled future in a country reluctant to fulfill the promise of freedom for all.
