I'VE GOT A HOME IN GLORY LAND A Lost Tale of the Underground Railroad

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Karen Chilton

History • 14.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

The story starts with the 1989 unearthing of a secret cellar in a Toronto home that once belonged to runaway American slaves. Adding to that twenty years of research, historian and archaeologist Frost has written a compelling story based on actual events that occurred in 1831. Karen Chilton's masterful performance brings to life the eyewitness accounts of a daring escape while humanizing an academic narrative. Chilton makes her listener a co-conspirator in the “great social tool of the nineteenth century,” as the Underground Railroad has been described. Even though the story’s outcome is known, Chilton keeps listeners on pins and needles as they experience the fear of the escaping couple who are "stealing" themselves. This is gem for any lover of American history. P.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 08]
