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.

This book has gorgeous watercolor pictures and is a great way for kids to learn about the life of Harriet Tubman.

Beautiful words and language; beautiful pictures. It may take a younger reader a moment to realize the direction of the story (going back in time), but once they catch on, it's simple to follow.
