Always pursued by the ruthless Morgan, his master’s foreman.Christian and Jewish families, even Henry David Thoreau, help Tice, who they find likeable, friendly and even funny despite his life of misery. Near the end of Tice’s journey, one teenage boy in an “underground railroad” family becomes particularly close to him and another escaping slave who has renamed himself “Freeborn.” This boy, Caleb Chadwick, is instrumental in the penultimate leg in Tice and Freeborn’s escape when he takes them via horse-drawn wagon from Vassalboro to Bangor, Maine.
