These sites are located in the South, Canada, & all of the NE & Midwestern states. Some of the underground houses are now offices or private homes, but others are museums, often with false doors, hidden rooms, & trapdoors. The book is divided into regional sections with listings of tourism offices & hist. soc. Includes a comprehensive history of slavery & the development of the UR which changed the course of American history. Maps.
