What would it take for slaves to escape from slavery in the Deep South, 1,000 miles from freedom and then on to England during the time of the Fugitive Slave Act? For most slaves the very thought of escape was unimaginable. But fear did not stop Ellen and William Craft from chasing freedom. A riveting and inspiring story of two amazing people who stopped at nothing to fight for freedom and racial equality, this thrillingly true tale chronicles Ellen and William Craft's lives from their flight from slavery in Georgia to their rise to worldwide fame as heroes of the Abolitionist movement. Illustrated with period artwork, newspaper clippings, and archival photographs,5,000 Miles to Freedomcaptures the unforgiving realities of slave life, the political hatred between the North and the South, and, above all, the extraordinary achievements of this most remarkable couple.
