From the Publisher:
A definitive full-scale biography of the legendary fugitive slave turned "conductor" on the Underground Railroad describes Tubman's youth in the antebellum South, her escape to Philadelphia, her successful efforts to liberate slaves, and her work as a scout, spy, and nurse for the Union Army during the Civil War.
Annotation:
Harriet Tubman was the one-time slave who escaped and fled North and whose amazing life included being a conductor of the Underground Railroad, scout for the Union army during the Civil war, and a public speaker on behalf of not only abolition but women's suffrage. Tubman is a central figure in African American history, yet has been overlooked in many general histories. Though she is perhaps more known in schools, and there have been many biographies of her for children and young adults, this is one of the first full-length biographies of Tubman for adults in decades. Catherine Clinton is the author of FANNY KEMBLE'S CIVIL WARS.
