Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This unique biography of Harriet Tubman uses interviewswith Tubman, as well as writings from her contempories, to tell the story of her life.

"There was one of two things I had a right to, liberty or death. If I could not have one, I would have the other, for no man should take me alive."

Born into slavery on a southern plantation, Harriet Tubman dreamed of the Promised Land to the north. After escaping slavery herself, she repeatedly returned to the South to lead more than 300 other slaves to freedom along the Underground Railroad. During the Civil War, Tubman served as a Union spy. Later in life, she established a home for the sick and needy in Auburn, NY. Tubman's faith and determination guided her throughout her long and eventful life.

Synopsis:

From her own childhood as a slave to her establishment of the Underground Railroad that led untold thousands of slaves to freedom, this story of the life of Harriet Tubman draws from her own words from interviews and accounts from those who knew her. Photos & illustrations.
