Real Stories From My Time

The Underground Railroad

Author: Connie Porter, Bonnie Bader; Illustrator: Kelley McMorris

  • AGES 8 - 12 
  • Genre Historical Fiction
The Underground Railroad did not run under the ground. It wasn't even a real railroad. The Underground Railroad was the escape route that slaves took to reach freedom. If caught escaping, the punishments were horrible. But to many slaves, freedom was worth the risk.
The Underground Railroad includes miles of real stories of passengers, conductors, and abolitionists, well-known and unknown, that made their mark on history. Throughout, BeForever character Addy Walker shares snippets of her own gripping fictional story of escaping slavery.
American stories travel back to America;s past — a past filled with stories of courage, adventure, tragedy, and hope. Along the way, favorite American Girl characters will share their own incredible tales.
The Real Stories From My Time chapter book series pairs nonfiction content with beloved American Girl BeForever characters, offering readers a unique entry point into important events in American history. Perfect for book reports with full-page illustrations throughout, plus historical photos, maps, a timeline, a glossary, and bibliography at the back.
