THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD is the story of Cora, a young woman enslaved on a Georgia plantation, who decides to escape with Caesar, a new arrival to the plantation. They take the Underground Railroad, which they find is no metaphor, as it carries them under the very ground they toil on to their freedom.
