Description

Ellen Craft and William Craft were slaves from Georgia who escaped to the North in 1848. They became famous due to the daring way they made their escape. Ellen, being light skinned, passed herself off as a white male, with William as her servant, allowing them to basically travel openly by train and steamboat. They eventually emigrated to England where they lived for almost 20 years. Running a Thousand Miles for Freedom is their biographical account.

This book has 65 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1860.

Production notes: This e-book of Running a Thousand Miles for Freedom was published by Global Grey in 2019.
