Overview

Homeschoolers and Christian Educators Love These Biographies!

The MEN and WOMEN OF FAITH series of biographies are an extraordinary set of one-evening introductions to the lives of godly men and women who have served the church over the past centuries. Perfect if you are homeschooling a child or simply want to read more about past pillars of our Christian heritage, the series welcomes to the series the history of Harriet Tubman.

Known as the black "Moses" of the Civil War, Harriet Tubman (1821-1913) rescued over three hundred slaves through the Underground Railroad. She also served the Union Army in South Carolina during the war, serving as a cook, nurse, scout for raiding parties, and a spy behind the Confederate lines.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
This biography of Harriet Tubman's inspirational life is well-written and sustains the reader's interest. Known as the black "Moses," this former slave helped more than 300 other slaves escape from bondage. Readers come to know and respect Tubman as details of her daring courage are described. She survived brutality from a number of slave masters, but somehow emerged with dignity and resolve to help free her people. The author attributes this to her strong, abiding faith in God and to her nurturing parents and siblings. This book, which is one in the publisher's "Women of Faith," series, has a decidedly Christian perspective. Readers are constantly reminded that Tubman's belief in God is what sustained her through dark, fearful days and countless episodes of abuse. 1999, Bethany House, Ages 9 up, $4.99. Reviewer: Jeanne K. Pettenati—Children's Literature
