At age six the sharp bite of the whip taught Harriet Tubman what it meant to be a slave. The other slaves scoffed when Harriet resolved to escape to the north someday. Little did they know that this girl would one day lead hundreds of slaves to freedome on the Underground Railroad. Even huge rewards for her capture-dead or alive-did not stop Harriet from risking her life again and again in the fight for liberty as the nation spiraled toward the Civil War. Whether running from slave hunters, advising generals, or improving conditions in war hospitals, remarkable Harriet Tubman would not be satisfied until every person could experience true freedom.

Review 1 for Heroes of History: Harriet Tubman, Freedombound
Date:March 11, 2009
This book was VERY exciting. My daughter and I both read it and loved it! She used it for a 5th grade book report. Lots of facts, but, interesting reading. My daughter said she learned that all people are valuable and everyone should be treated the same. Couldn't have asked for more from such a book! And Harriet Tubman's faith is a great testimony.
