School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-8-Tubman's remarkable journey as a leader of the Underground Railroad is chronicled in this well-researched biography. The book discusses the woman's life from her birth into slavery on a Maryland plantation around 1820 (the exact date is unknown) until her death in 1913. In discussing Tubman's life as a slave, Schraff does not gloss over the harsh treatment her subject received. The book also mentions Tubman's service to the Union during the Civil War, working as a nurse, scout, and spy. Her extraordinary story reads like an adventure and, indeed, this text flows as swiftly as a novel. Crisp, black-and-white photos and an uncluttered layout add to the appeal. This compelling volume will be useful for reports.-Kristen Oravec, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Strongsville, OH (c) Copyright 2010.
