A slice of historical fiction detailing the remarkable life of Harriet Tubman: her enslavement, her fight for freedom and then her immeasurable bravery freeing others through the Underground Railroad, as a nurse during the civil war and as a suffragette. Little Rebels Judge, Elizabeth Laird, said: 'Harriet Tubman is an enthralling figure in the history of the American Civil Rights movement. This short, gripping biography will inspire young readers, both lovers of fiction and non-fiction alike. Harriet Tubman's idealism, courage and self-sacrifice make her an ideal role model in an era where empty celebrity is an aspiration for so many children'. Age 10-12, Paperback 112pp
