Review: A runaway slave named Harriet Tubman risked her life for over 20 years by returning to the south to bring other slaves north on the Underground Railroad. During the Civil War, she continued to serve the cause by working for the Union Army as a spy. After the war, she worked tirelessly for the rights of both blacks and women. The book is filled with wonderful primary sources from that time period.
