Celebrated for her courageous exploits as a conductor on the Underground Railroad, Harriet Tubman has entered history as one of nineteenth-century America's most enduring and important figures. But just who was this remarkable woman?


Not being steeped in US culture, I'd never heard of Harriet Tubman until she was alluded to in a story I was reading. I wanted to find out more. Then I found that it isn't easy to find non-fiction about her. This book got the best reviews on Amazon, so I thought I'd start with it.

I lost momentum about 2/3 of the way through, but what I had read was very interesting.
