Description:

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 iconographic animation come together to honor a woman of humble origins whose courage and compassion make her larger than life.

Quotes:

This lovely tribute effectively communicates Tubman's -everlasting bravery and resolve, and will ­inspire curious readers to learn more., School Library Journal

A memorable, lyrical reverse-chronological walk through the life of an American icon. While the text introduces readers to the details of Tubman's life, Ransome's use of watercolor...reveals Tubman's humanity, determination, drive, and hope., Kirkus

Beyond its recognition of all that Tubman accomplished, the book serves as a powerful reminder of how all children carry within them the potential for greatness., Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Vivid background sounds and lovely violin, piano, and guitar music pair with Mia Ellis’ soothing narration, which conveys the transcendent human spirit of Harriet Tubman. This rich biography, the recipient of a 2018 Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor celebrates Tubman's many accomplishments and legacy., Booklist
