By Beverly Lowry
Tubman used to be an escaped slave, lumberjack, laundress, raid chief, nurse, fund-raiser, prepare dinner, intelligence gatherer, Underground Railroad organizer, and abolitionist. In Harriet Tubman, Lowry creates a portrait enriched with full of life imagined vignettes that rework the mythical icon into flesh and blood. We go back and forth with Tubman on slave-freeing raids within the center of the Confederacy, alongside the treacherous course of the Underground Railroad, and onto the battlefields of the Civil conflict. Integrating broad study and interviews with students and historians right into a wealthy and enchanting chronicle, Lowry brings an American hero to lifestyles as by no means before.
