Description
A Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist, William Ecenbarger has walked as much of the Mason-Dixon Line (dividing Maryland and Pennsylvania) as is humanly possible, from its beginnings on Fenwick Island, Delaware, to its end at Brown's Hill, Pennsylvania. His unique, ground level history/travelogue examines the influence of this great survey line, which remains a powerful symbol separating Northern and Southern culture.

"Ecenbarger travels across the region, investigating the history of race and culture in the U.S. Drawing on published sources and interviews, as well as his own observations of its architecture and geography, Ecenbarger tells the Line's often tragic story. Meanwhile, he introduces readers to the people who've lived along the dividing line, including Kay McElvey, an African-American teacher in Hurlock, Maryland, who traced the history of the local black community; Quaker Thomas Garrett of Wilmington, Delaware, a 19th-century abolitionist who wouldn't quit working on the underground railroad even after he was heavily fined for his activities; Daniel Logab, Garrett's ethical opposite, who made his living capturing runaway slaves and selling them south; and Sarah Bulah, an ordained minister, who lived on the Line and joined other blacks to fight segregated schools.... A well-written and dramatic examination of history, geography and race."—Publishers Weekly
