The Search for the Underground Railroad in Upstate New York

My latest book, The Search for the Underground Railroad in Upstate New York, published by History Press, recounts my early years researching the Underground Railroad, telling how I got involved, acknowledging those who helped me, and tracing the steps that led to my most important finds.  It clearly demonstrates that the oral stories about the Underground Railroad are usually based on fact, and it uses newspaper reports and other period accounts as evidence.  In most Underground Railroad legends, there is often a solid kernel of truth.
