This simple, unvarnished account recalls the courageous life of Harriet Tubman, one of the best-known "conductors" on the Underground Railroad. First published in 1869 and privately printed to raise funds for "the Moses of her people," Sarah Bradford's memorable biography recalls the former slave's grim childhood; her perilous experiences leading slaves into Canada; her efforts as a Civil War nurse, cook, and scout for the Union Army; and her post-conflict endeavors to aid and educate former slaves.
An inspiring story of bravery, perseverance, and self-sacrifice, this accurate, reliable account by Tubman's contemporary is essential reading for students of American history and African-American studies.
