About This Book
This inspiring biography of Harriet Tubman tells how she helped free over 300 slaves as a "conductor" for the Underground Railroad and how she became a nurse, a scout and spy for the Union Forces during the Civil War.
From the time she was a small child, Harriet Tubman was forced to work in the fields and was treated badly by her owner. Finally, leaving her family behind, she ran away to the North, where she became a "conductor" on the Underground Railroad--returning South again and again to rescue over 300 slaves.
