Publisher's Description

The quintessential biography for middle grade readers of Harriet Tubman, the anti-slavery hero who is expected to be the face of the new $20 bill. The New Yorker praised this book as “an evocative portrait,” and the Chicago Tribune called it “superb.”

Harriet Tubman was born a slave and dreamed of being free. She was willing to risk everything—including her own life—to see that dream come true. After her daring escape, Harriet became a conductor on the secret Underground Railroad, helping others make the dangerous journey to freedom.

Harriet Tubman: Conductor on the Underground Railroad is an accessible portrait of the woman who guided more than 300 slaves to freedom. This award-winning introduction to the late abolitionist is an ALA Notable Book and a New York Times Outstanding Book. This book also includes an index.
