From the Back Cover

Born a slave, Harriet Tubman dreamed of freedom. And through hard work and her willingness to risk everything-including her life-she was able to make that dream come true.But after making her escape, Harriet realized that her own freedom was not enough. So she became a conductor on the Underground Railroad, and devoted her life to helping others make the journey out of bondage. An invisible threat to plantation owners, she served as a symbol of strength and inspiration for her people. She was the legendary "Moses," delivering hundreds from the desert of slavery.With indisputable narrative skill, Ann Petry recreates the life of a woman of great strength, bravery, and unshakeable moral fiber.

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. It was filled with the reality of what it was like for people like Harriet in those times. I also enjoyed this book because I don't think many people realize how difficult it was to live as a slave, and then to go back of your own free will was unthinkable. yet many escape slaves came back to teach others or free them. That is what this book is all about the hardships she went through. I highly recomend this book to people who would enjoy a good book. If I had to change something I would want Harriet to explain in more detail, and from her view or first hand what exactly she went through.

She passes a very difficult life on the plantation.The master always contracts her out and the people who get her treat her very bad.Then when she grows up, she hears a story of a slave who was running away and he suddenly takes the underground railroad and gets to freedom.So she decides to go to the North to freedom by the under ground railroad.When she gets to the North she decides to help out the rest of the slaves by the underground railroad.Then she helps more than 300 slaves get to freedom.

Harriet Tubman was a fascinating book. I personally like to read history novels and books about people's lives, but this is more than a history book. This book tells all about the horrifying life she had as a child; secretly learning how to read then seeing her mother get beaten for it. This is one of the most interesting books I have read so far about slaves and freeing them. What Harriet Tubman did for the huge amount of slaves was amazing and not reccognized enough until now. Harriet Tubman is a savior not only for the 300 black slaves but also for letting white people know what it was like during the time when there were slaves. Anyone who likes exciting books should really read this.

The book is about a girl who had an unusual life as a child. Harriet Tubman suffered a lot during her life time. She risked her life to help slaves and take them to the North. If you like adventure and a very descriptive book you should read it. You learn and experience what it was like during her time.Harriet Tubman never gave up. I especially liked how the book had historical facts at the end of each chapter to explain what was going on during her events. It was an interesting and exciting book, a page turner. You don't have to like history to read this book. You'll get hooked anyway.
