This quintessential middle grade biography of Harriet Tubman now features a cover by NAACP Image Award winner and Caldecott Honor illustrator Kadir Nelson, a foreword by National Book Award finalist Jason Reynolds, and additional new material.
Harriet Tubman: Conductor on the Underground Railroad was praised by the New Yorker as “an evocative portrait,” and by the Chicago Tribune as “superb.” It is a gripping and accessible portrait of the heroic woman who guided more than 300 slaves to freedom and who is expected to be the face of the new $20 bill.
Harriet Tubman was born a slave and dreamed of being free. She was willing to risk everything—including her own life—to see that dream come true. After her daring escape, Harriet became a conductor on the secret Underground Railroad, helping others make the dangerous journey to freedom.
This award-winning introduction to the late abolitionist, which was named an ALA Notable Book and a New York Times Outstanding Book, also includes an index, a timeline, and other educational back matter.

This classic biography, called "unusually well written and moving" by Horn Book, is a vivid and accessible portrait of one of America's most inspiring heroes. The story of the courageous woman who guided over 300 slaves to freedom is told "with insight, style and a fine narrative skill," wrote the New York Times.From the Back Cover:
“She braved every danger, overcame every obstacle.”
Born a slave, Harriet Tubman dreamed of being free. And she was willing to risk everything—including her life—to make that dream come true.
After her dangerous escape, Harriet saw that her own liberty wasn’t enough and became a conductor on the secret Underground Railroad, helping others make the perilous journey out of bondage.
Along the way, Harriet suffered betrayal and a broken heart, but she always symbolized strength and inspiration. She was a legendary “Moses,” a hero delivering hundreds from the desert of slavery and giving them the greatest gift one can give: freedom.
