Editorial Reviews

“A deep-digging work of rich historical recovery, I’ve Got a Home in Glory Land is really two books: a biography of two famous runaways and a sifting of the rock-filled times in which they lived.” Edward Ball, New York Times bestselling author
“Exhaustively researched and poignantly told…pulsates with the breathtaking urgency of a thriller.” Boston Globe
“Smardz Frost’s fascination with her subject and love of detailed historical documentation are evident in this engrossing look at a couple who defied slavery with their escape and their assistance to other fugitive slaves.” Booklist (starred review)
“Karen Chilton’s masterful performance brings to life the eyewitness accounts of a daring escape while humanizing an academic narrative. Chilton makes her listener a co-conspirator in the ‘great social tool of the nineteenth century,’ as the Underground Railroad has been described…Chilton keeps listeners on pins and needles as they experience the fear of the escaping couple who are ‘stealing’ themselves. This is gem for any lover of American history. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
