A journey with the underground railroad's most daring abolitionist.

Alexander Ross walked the plantation fields in the Deep South, freely and with permission. He was a famous ornithologist -- visiting the plantations to study the birdlife. But Alexander Milton Ross was no ordinary birdman. He was an undercover Abolitionist. And he had news to spread to the men and women living in slavery about the Underground Railroad. He knew the routes, the location of the safe houses and the best ways to head to freedom in Canada.

Discover the forgotten life and true adventures of a daring Abolitionist who risked everything to help bring freedom and dignity to the heroic men and women enslaved in the American south.

Back matter includes historical notes.
