Moody Publishers Courage to Run: A Story Based on the Life of Harriet Tubman

Born Arminta Ross, young Harriet Tubman (named after her mother when she was full-grown) was a faithful strong girl growing up in the late 1800's as a slave in the south. Her faith was at the center of everything she did and she was tested at every turn. The story of her childhood is a record of courage and bravery. Even more, it's the story of God's faithfulness as he prepares her to eventually lead more than 300 people out of slavery through the Underground Railroad. For ages 8-12.

Courage to Run is a story based on the life of Harriet Tubman, a slave who grows up to lead over 300 slaves out of slavery despite the risk of getting caught. This book is so exciting its hard to put it down. By Suzanne Alvernaz, Age 12

Lawton does an outstanding job of putting the reader right in the Quarter house for slaves on a plantation in Maryland with the young Harriet Tubman, her family and close friends. The reader anguishes with Harriet every time her master whips her. We pull for her to return to her family every time she is hired out to other slave owners. We rejoice with her when God answers her simple yet profound prayers. And we are challenged when a young girl asks God for the courage it takes to run for freedom.I knew very little about Harriet Tubman before reading Lawtons book. Now Ill never forget her.

This book is terrific. I got it to give to someone much younger than I, but decided to read it myself first to make sure it was age-appropriate. I couldn't put it down. It makes the horrors of slavery so real.The faith the slaves held through it all is inspiring.And it brings a historical figure - Harriet Tubman - to life.
