About the Author:

Jeri Chase Ferrisis the award-winning author of eleven biographies for children and young adults. She specializes in biographies of women and minorities - people who have done great and important deeds, but have been overlooked in history. "We all like to be treated fairly," Jeri says. "Many of the people I write about were not treated fairly. My books set the record straight." She lives in California. This is her first book with Houghton Mifflin. Visit her website at www.jerichaseferris.com!

Karen Ritz has illustrated books for all ages, including "Kate Shelley and the Midnight Express," a Reading Rainbow feature book. She has a degree in children's literature from the University of Minnesota and teaches illustration and workshops on visual literacy. She lives with her husband and two children in St. Paul, Minnesota.

From School Library Journal:

ea. vol: map. (Creative Minds Bks.). CIP. Carolrhoda. 1988. PLB $9.95. Grade 3-6 Ferris presents all the pertinent facts about her subjects, but in a narrative framework that includes invented dialogue, attributed emotions, and se lective highlighting of events. This makes for interesting, readable stories that still contain enough information for reports. Go Free or Die is the weaker of the two. It has some major discrepan cies with other sources, and traces Tub man's life only through her escape from slavery at age 28. The remaining 50 years of her lifeincluding her numer ous trips back South to lead other slaves to freedom, her Civil War activi ties, and her later yearsare covered in an 8-page afterword. Sam and Beryl Epstein's Harriet Tubman: Guide to Freedom (Garrard, 1968), geared to ap proximately the same age group, cov ers most of Tubman's life in an ade quate manner. Walking the Road to Freedom is better, although the black- and-white illustrations are boring and bland. Truth's long life is covered effec tively. Ann W. Moore, Lane Road Li brary, Columbus
