    IT WAS A PERFECT BOOK

    Harriet liked freeing slaves. She was a very brave slave. She feels strongly about helping slaves. She really cares about her parents. She does not worry about getting hurt. I like her character. This is a good book because she is so brave.

    Awesome Book

    Harriet Tubman is an inspiring book to me because she risked her life to bring others to the world of freedom. I also liked all the night time running away because it would be even scarier than in the day.I didn't like how the black people were whipped and treated unfairly because the color their skin. I wish that more black people stuck up for themselves.Still I would recommend this book to any body who likes action and history combined.

    Story of Harriet Tubman: Conductor of the Underground Railroad

    I liked this book because I didn¿t know a person could have that much determination and commitment.. Harriet Tubman was a black woman who escaped slavery and showed commitment by sticking to her goal by freeing slaves. She had determination by letting nobody step in her path, and she is still one of my hero¿s. I would recommend it to anyone who will read it.

    Story of Harriet Tubman: Conductor of the Underground Railroad

    Harriet Tubman is a fantastic book. I would recommend this book to anybody that likes non-fiction books. When I read Harriet Tubman I learned more about slavery. Harriet Tubman is a strong person she went through a difficult life being a slave. Harriet risks her life to help other slaves get to freedom. If I could but 200 stars for Harriet Tubman I would.
