Synopsis

Harriet Tubman Leading the Way to Freedom by Laurie Calkhoven

If you are tired; if you are scared; if you are hungry; if you want to taste freedom; keep going. After successfully escaping slavery when only in her twenties, Harriet Tubman became known as the 'Moses' of her people when she put herself in danger again and again in order to help others achieve liberty. Commended by abolitionists and condemned by slaveholders, she spied for the Union and became the first American woman to plan and direct a battle during the Civil War. Her compelling story is told here, along with information about slave life, the Underground Railroad and famous abolitionists. Sterling Biographies are packed with information and filled with unique images that include rare documentary photographs, artwork, maps and personal artefacts. Focusing on inventors and innovative thinkers, they present first-person accounts and dramatic events related in an intimate and accessible style.
