Publisher's Description

Two women with similar backgrounds. Both slaves; both fiercely independent. Both great, in different ways.

Harriet Tubman: brave pioneer who led her fellow slaves to freedom, larger than life . . . yearning to be free.

Sojourner Truth: strong woman who spoke up for African American rights, tall as a tree . . . yearning to be free.

One day in 1864, the lives of these two women came together. When Harriet Met Sojourner is a portrait of these two remarkable women, from their inauspicious beginnings to their pivotal roles in the battle for America's future.

Editorial Reviews

“Clinton and Evans deliver gripping parallel portraits of Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth.”
“The compelling parallel narratives of two women ‘joined by a kinship of spirit’ still add up to a stirring history.”
