Description
 
This riveting biography shows that Harriet Tubman was a singular & complex woman. She was raised on the Eastern Shore of Maryland in the 1820s. While still in her early 20s she left her family & her husband, a free black, to make the journey north alone. Yet within a year of her arrival in Philadelphia, Tubman returned south, first to save family members slated for the auction block, then others. Soon she became one of the most infamous enemies of slaveholders. She established herself as the first & only woman, the only black, & one of the few fugitive slaves to work as a conductor on the Underground Railroad. When the Civil War broke out, she acted as a scout & a spy while serving with the Union Army in South Carolina. Photos.
