Running a thousand miles for freedom by William Craft( Book )

5 editions published between 1860 and 2013 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1848 William and Ellen Craft made one of the most daring and remarkable escapes in the history of slavery in America. With fair-skinned Ellen in the guise of a white male planter and William posing as her servant, the Crafts traveled by rail and ship - in plain sight and relative luxury - from bondage in Macon, Georgia, to freedom first in Philadelphia, then Boston, and ultimately England." "This edition of their thrilling story faithfully follows the original 1860 text. The new introduction and annotated supplementary readings, drawn from a variety of contemporary sources, help to place the Crafts' story within the complex cultural currents of transatlantic abolitionism."--BOOK JACKET
