Harriet Tubman: The Line to Freedom
This biography of Harriet Tubman not only describes her struggles as a slave, but also captures snapshots of her character: a strong, determined, and faithful woman. These insights into her character shed light on how she escaped from slavery, and subsequently made more than nineteen missions to rescue over 300 slaves. Further, this biography would compliment a unit on American history, Civil Rights, women's suffrage, and would also work well as an independent reading choice, for Harriet Tubman’s story is one of true, real life heroism.
