Staff Reviews


A story to inspire us, and remind us - never stop trying to change our world! Harriet had many names - Conductor, Spy, Daughter, Moses - and this book tells them all, and shows us, with beautiful illustration and text, the life of a great women and hero!

— Leah Moore

Description


A lush and lyrical biography of Harriet Tubman, written in verse and illustrated by an award-winning artist.
We know her today as Harriet Tubman, but in her lifetime she was called by many names. As General Tubman she was a Union spy. As Moses she led hundreds to freedom on the Underground Railroad. As Minty she was a slave whose spirit could not be broken. An evocative poem and opulent watercolors come together to honor a woman of humble origins whose courage and compassion make her larger than life.
