Reviewer Matthew J. Clavin writes that abolitionist William Still has been overshadowed by prominent antislavery activists like “Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison, Harriet Tubman” and others. However, Andrew K Diemer’s Vigilance: The Life of William Still, Father of the Underground Railroad (Alfred A. Knopf) is a “well-written and deeply researched biography” that will ensconce Still’s among the most important abolitionists agitators. The book itself, Clavin writes, will similarly earned “a place on the shelf of new and important works on abolitionists, abolitionism, and the Underground Railroad.”
