This book details the efforts and tells the stories of the many neglected individuals who participated in the Underground Railroad in the rural sections of south-central Ohio. It only mentions in passing the noted sites and conductors in Cincinnati and Ripley in its effort to bring attention to those who have so far been neglected by history, including individuals like Abram Allen and his Liberator wagon, Valentine Nicholson, Udney Hyde, William Cratty, and the Butterworth and Benedict families. A reader of this book wrote in his review: “Terrific book. Everyone who is in central and southern Ohio must read this as well as all who are interested in the underground railroad.”
