About the Author

Brian Martin was an award-winning journalist for more than 40 years, telling the stories of Southwestern Ontario, where most of From Underground Railroad to Rebel Refuge takes place. He has written two true crime books, several biographies and baseball histories, and is a member of two historical societies. He lives in London, ON.

"Martin offers a well-researched and lively account, rich with fascinating characters and sparkling anecdotes. He skillfully explores an important era in Canada's development when it banned slavery, offered sanctuary to those escaping it, played significant roles in the Civil War that was fought to end it, and later provided asylum to Confederates who had battled to keep it." -- John Boyko, author of Blood and Daring: How Canada Fought the American Civil War and Forged a Nation
"Several good books have been written about Canadians in the Civil War. But the story of how Canada was a Confederate base and refuge during and after the Civil War was a black hole. Not anymore." -- Mark Bourrie, award-winning author of Bush Runner: The Adventures of Pierre-Esprit Radisson
"This should be obligatory reading for serious Civil War, Canadian and international history buffs." -- The Passionate Reader blog
"This book will make armchair historians head for the easy chair tonight. From Underground Railroad to Rebel Refuge will introduce you to a new set of heroes and villains. And if your goal is to learn more about American history, this book about Canada will get you right on track." -- The Miami Times
