2018 Coretta Scott King Honor Book!
A different look at the life of Harriet Tubman - this beautifully illustrated biography examines the different roles Harriet Tubman held through her life. Perfect book to share in you elementary classroom or school library.
We know her today as Harriet Tubman, but in her lifetime she was called by many names. As General Tubman she was a Union spy. As Moses she led hundreds to freedom on the Underground Railroad. As Minty she was a slave whose spirit could not be broken. An evocative poem and opulent watercolors come together to honor a woman of humble origins whose courage and compassion make her larger than life.
