A Magnificent Tour De Force Chronicling A Young Slave’s Adventures As She Makes A Desperate Bid For Freedom In The Antebellum South. Cora Is A Slave On A Cotton Plantation In Georgia. When Caesar, A Recent Arrival From Virginia, Tells Her About The Underground Railroad, They Decide To Take A Terrifying Risk And Escape. Though They Manage To Find A Station And Head North, They Are Being Hunted. Their First Stop Is South Carolina, In A City That Initially Seems Like A Haven. But The City’s Placid Surface Masks An Insidious Scheme Designed For Its Black Denizens. And Even Worse: Ridgeway, The Relentless Slave Catcher, Is Close On Their Heels. Forced To Flee Again, Cora Embarks On A Harrowing Flight, State By State, Seeking True Freedom. Like The Protagonist Of Gulliver’s Travels, Cora Encounters Different Worlds At Each Stage Of Her Journey — Hers Is An Odyssey Through Time As Well As Space. As Whitehead Re-creates The Unique Terrors For Black People In The Pre-civil War Era, His Narrative Weaves The Saga Of America From The Brutal Importation Of Africans To The Unfulfilled Promises Of The Present Day. Ajarry — Georgia — Ridgeway — South Carolina — Stevens — North Carolina — Ethel — Tennessee — Caesar — Indiana — Mabel — The North. Colson Whitehead.
