Araminta Ross was born a slave in Delaware in the early 19th century. Slavery meant that her family could be ripped apart at any time, and that she could be put to work in dangerous places and for abusive people. But north of the Mason-Dixon line, slavery was illegal. If she could run away and make it north without being caught or killed, she'd be free. Facing enormous danger, Araminta made it, and once free, she changed her name to Harriet Tubman. Tubman spent the rest of her life helping slaves run away like she did, every time taking her life in her hands.

This is my favorite of the NHHT series so far. The tremendous accomplishments of Harriet Tubman are clearly presented along with her faith. Her people knew her by one name--Moses. She led them away from slavery and to the promised land of freedom. How was she successful when so many others were not -- most certainly God was with her and provided a hedge of protection. This book shows briefly how Harriet worked with the Union army to free hundreds of slaves from plantation during the Civil War. For adults and teens who want to read more about this time in her life, I commend 'The Tubman Command' to you for more about Harriet's special project during the war.

This series of historical graphic novels has become very popular in our household, with our 9-year-old AND the adults. Informative and engaging.

Truth is stranger than fiction in this engaging biography. Master taking away a runaway slave is his brother. Tubman's family owned by two white family members get into twenty year legal feud over who get what. Tubman reunited with John Brown supporter in the American civil war. Graphic novel much better getting the message than dry biographies. Cute touch of hangman making a sandcastle in the unexplored area of historical United States map & the redcoat chastising him.
