"This book was a very informative narrative. I liked reading thus book because of how strong Harriet Tubman was. For example, she took the underground railroad which a route of houses who would hide the african american people from the whites; she made it to freedom alone but she still came back and risked her life to save the her people. One of her famous quotes is "let my people go".
I was very surprised on how much I liked this book because it was a nonfiction book and normally I get very bored and uninterested in the story as it goes on. I think the author did an exceptional job on this book because it was well written and I found nothing I didn't like about it.
The author told the story of Harriet Tubman's life while maintaining the idea not to give up and let fear run your life. I would say that is the main message of this book because it really must have been scary to run away once from the whites, but to continually run away from them over and over again must have taken a lot of courage. It is no wonder that Harriet was such an influential person.

When she was five years old she is given by her owner to another person who wants a slave but can't afford one of her own. She gets sick very easy. One she was sick so her owner sent her back to her mother when she got better she went back. After a while her owner got a new slave and sent her to another home. When she was there she had to watch a baby. She had to make sure that the baby did not cry and if it did she would get wiped by her owner. Once again she got sick and went home.

After some time she joined the Underground Railroad. One the Underground Railroad she would go back to states with slavery and take other slaves to free states.

" An incredibly brace woman. Her mental strength and physical strength is such an inspiration to me. Like her I want all people to be free, loved and taken care of no matter what. " said.

" Asher (11yo) read for History. "Good description of Harriet Tubman's life. I really liked that they described some of the spy missions she was in." " said.

" It's hard to not like anything that shares HT's story. What a woman. However, I have to say that in several cases I was astonished at how nice the author made slavery sound and her characterization of American hero, Nat Turner was negative and stank of white privilege. " said.

" Sat down and read this book in about 45 minutes. Great short and insightful read for a Champion of free people. This unique woman had courage and an unrelenting desire to have her dream come true and see her people to freedom. Known as the woman Moses. It certainly suits her. " said.

" 106 pages. Well-written information on a historical figure who was famous as a conductor of the Underground Railroad during slavery in the USA. Author explains her life in enough detail that an elementary student could do a great report. Illustrations and other added information like a timeline at the end is very helpful. Highly recommended for Grades 4 and up. " said.
