Harriet Tubman: the Moses of Her People, was originally published in 1886. It is a classic biography of one of America's most important women. The book was based on a collection of essays, Scenes in the Life of Harriet Tubman, compiled by Sarah Bradford, which was published in 1869. Harriet Tubman was a former slave who led a heroic struggle for her people in the Civil War. An American Joan of Arc, she was more successful than any other person of her time in liberating African-Americans from slavery. Both books were privately funded by Sarah Bradford. Profits went to Harriet Tubman who, in turn, housed and cared for indigents until her death in 1913.
