Review:

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.
