List Price: $4.99 (Paperback - Biography / Conductor / Underground Railroad - 2002)
Description: Born a slave in Maryland, Harriet Tubman knew first-hand what it meant to be someone's property; she was whipped by owners and almost killed by an overseer. It was from other field hands that she first heard about the Underground Railroad which she traveled by herself north to Philadelphia. Throughout her long life (she died at the age of ninety-two) and long after the Civil War brought an end to slavery, this amazing woman was proof of what just one person can do. (112 pgs) Ages 8-11
Ashay says, "When I think of strength and courage I think of Harriet Tubman. I love the Who Was chapter books. Their colorfully illustrated book covers and size really catches kids attention. (And quite honestly this is one way to get them to pick up a book and read it.) These books are perfect for 3rd - 5th graders and older students who are having difficulty reading. Great for the library and must have for the classroom!"
