Summary

Harriet Tubman : Moses of the Underground Railroad


I grew up like a neglected weed, ignorant of liberty, having no experience of it. Now I've been free, I know what a dreadful condition slavery is. Harriet Tubman ran away from slavery in 1849, walking one hundred miles to freedom in the North. For the next sixteen years, Tubman risked her newfound freedom, and her life, to help about three hundred other slaves escape. Sorting myth from truth in this amazing tale of courage and heroism, Anne Schraff breathes new life into the story of the most famous conductor on the Underground Railroad. During the Civil War, Tubman worked as a nurse and a scout for the Union army, and in her later years, she joined the struggle for the education of her people and for women's rights.
