Under the cover of darkness, an estimated 100,000 slaves traveled north to freedom in the decades prior to the Civil War. They had little knowledge of the trails that lead to their liberty. To find north was to look for moss growing on the north side of trees or by observing the North Star located by the Big Dipper.
Michna-Bales takes you on a dark lit passage through demanding terrains and ominous river crossings in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, and finally Ontario, Canada. The threatening rivers crossed included the Mississippi, Tennessee and the Ohio River (The River Jordan).
