Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Ms. Krohn has captured the essence of Sojourner Truth's life in twenty-six short pages. She has also provided historical context for her subject's life. Sojourner's given name was Isabella. Born into slavery in New York State, she spoke only Dutch in her childhood and never learned to read or write. Isabella was a slave for 30 years, living and traveling only in the northern U.S. This is important information, since most students think of slavery as existing in the states of the south, not those of the north. In 1843 God came to Isabella in a vision telling her to speak out against the wrongs in this country. Changing her name to Sojourner Truth, she walked west, speaking in towns along the way against slavery and in support of women's rights. Sojourner was a dedicated worker and powerful force until her death in 1883. Her life makes for an incredible story and this book is recommended for its good presentation. The time line at the end is very helpful. The book is part of "Fact Finders Biographies" series. 2006, Capstone Press, Ages 7 to 9.
