About The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead:

Colson Whitehead's National Book Award-winning The Underground Railroad is a bold, original, and unflinchingly brutal portrait of slavery during the darkest period in American history.

On the cusp of womanhood, Cora is a runaway slave, pursued by her memories of abuse and abandonment, and by the implacable and notoriously cruel slave hunter known as Ridgeway. Her journey on the Underground Railroad--in Whitehead's conceit, a literal, subterranean railway--propels her journey across a dangerous landscape in search of freedom.

The summary and analysis in this book are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to a great work of fiction.
