Children learn about Harriet Tubman's life, beginning with the harsh treatment she received as a child slave and including her escape to freedom, her legendary role as a conductor on the Underground Railroad and her life as a free woman in upstate New York. Drawing upon the recollections of a Tubman relative, the author explains how, as a seven-year-old slave, Harriet was whipped for eating an apple she had picked in her master's orchard. Later in life Harriet planted many apple trees on her property to celebrate her freedom and independence. Vivid illustrations enhance the concrete details and convey the courage, triumph and enduring contribution of this remarkable American. Movingly narrated by the author. Includes A Conversation With the Author.
