A straightforward biography about Harriet Tubman's struggles and success for both civil and women's rights.

With a forward-thinking attitude, Harriet Tubman escaped slavery and risked her life countless times to help free 70 others. She became monumental in both the civil rights movement and the women's suffrage movement. Kids will be inspired by this icon's tireless work to create a better America. This series features full-color illustrated covers, one-color illustrations throughout, a timeline, an introduction to the people you'll meet in the book, maps, sidebars, and a top-ten list of important things to know about each hero.

Courage can make a difference!

This is an enjoyable little book that packs a big historical punch. Maps, a glossary and a list of places to visit bring Harriet Tubman's story to life for readers of all ages. The topic of slavery is never an easy one to address, however, "I Am Harriet Tubman" presents it in such a way that allows the reader to focus on all of the positive changes that came about as a result of one woman's courage. As a homeschool educator and a resident of Maryland, I'm looking forward to visiting some of the places listed in here.

This book is a great addition to any history program!
