What would it take for slaves to escape from slavery in the Deep South, 1,000 miles from freedom? For most slaves the thought of escape was unimaginable. But fear did not stop Ellen and William Craft from chasing freedom. An inspiring and riveting story of two amazing people stopping at nothing to fight for freedom and racial equality, this thrilling true tale chronicles the Crafts' lives from their flight from Georgia slavery to their rise to world-wide fame as heroes of the Abolitionist movement.

Illustrated with period artwork, newspaper clippings, and archival photographs, 5,000 Miles to Freedom captures the unforgiving realities of slave life, the political hatred between North and South, and above all the extraordinary achievements of this remarkable couple.
