Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad

This book is about Harriet Tubman
"Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad" is an inspiring narrative that captures the courageous life of Harriet Tubman, a former slave who became a legendary figure in the fight for racial justice, gender equality, and voting rights. Born into slavery, Tubman's audacious escape in 1849 marked only the beginning of her journey. She ventured back into dangerous territories thirteen times, guiding many to freedom via the Underground Railroad. Her heroics didn’t end there; Tubman also served valiantly as a cook, nurse, and spy for the Union army during the Civil War. Post-war, she continued to impact lives by helping freed slaves transition to new beginnings, founding a home for elderly former slaves, and championing the women's suffrage movement. Richly illustrated and based on excerpts from primary sources, this book offers elementary school readers an accurate and thrilling portrayal of Tubman’s life. Engage with the enduring legacy of a woman who dared to change her world and ponder how her story influences us today.
