Overview

Al haber nacido como esclava en el estado de Maryland, Harriet Tubman supo, por experiencia propia, lo que significaba ser propiedad de otra persona. Sus dueños la azotaban con un látigo y uno de los capataces de la plantación casi la mata. Fue de boca de otros trabajadores que oyó hablar por primera vez del Underground Railroad; por el cual "viajó" sola hasta el estado de Filadelfia. El Underground Railroad no era realmente un sistema de trenes sino un grupo secreto de personas que, en la oscuridad de la noche, ayudaron a escapar a cientos de esclavos del sur de los Estados Unidos. Harriet murió a los noventa y dos años y su larga vida fue un testimonio de todo lo que una persona puede llegar a lograr.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-7–These well-translated volumes immediately connect readers with the subject by first providing background information. The authors use clear and plentiful illustrations, maps, and diagrams to explain the unfamiliar and extend knowledge. The balanced presentations relate aspects of each personality in simple terms. In Tut, Edwards mentions details of the latest King Tut’s research. Fradin includes the relationship between Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings. Prince includes interesting details in Twain such as the origin of Samuel Clemens’s writing pseudonym. The books present a clear picture of their subjects and the times in which they lived. Solid additions.–Ana Rodriguez, Tamarac Elementary School, FL
