    Easy to read about a difficult subject.

    This book about Harriet Tubman was interesting to me, and I believe it could be to many young people. It is inspiring and hopeful at the same time.

    You may know who Harriet Tubman was, and what she did as an adul

    You may know who Harriet Tubman was, and what she did as an adult in helping other slaves, like herself. While reading this book, you'll find out what her childhood was like too, and how it formed her life into what she became.

    Growing up, young Harriet's name was Araminta. (This was news to me.) Through the book, she's usually called Minty by her family & friends.

    "Minty" lives in the servant's quarter on the Brodas Plantation, and works hard every single day of her life. She's constantly surrounded by her loving family and close-knit friends. Hymns are always being sung, while the slaves went about their daily work. Some of these songs are exactly what gives Minty the courage to face each new day.

    "Go down, Moses.
    Way down in Egypt-land.
    Tell ol' Pharoh
    To let My people go."

    Harriet Tubman went through many trials as a child. For the most part, the slaves on the Brodas Plantation were treated fair enough, although sometimes they would receive harsh punishments. However when Minty was hired out as a maid to other people, she experienced daily thrashings. At the times when she was a hired maid, she was lonely and missed being with her family. She wanted to help others escape the heartache of her own experiences. Little did she know, that as she strengthened herself in the Lord, she was preparing to save other slaves' lives, and not just herself. Slowly, her courage grew.

    Children and adults alike would benefit from reading "Courage to Run". I liked it very much, and it is my favorite book about Harriet Tubman. At any moment, I feel like I could start reading it again!
    This book is a part of the "Daughters of the Faith Series".
