One of America's most important women, Harriet Tubman was a former slave who led a heroic struggle more bravely and more successfully than any other to liberate African-Americans from slavery.

THE MOSES OF HER PEOPLE, may seem a little ambitious, considering that this Moses was a woman, and that she succeeded in piloting only three or four hundred slaves from the land of bondage to the land of freedom. There was pressing need for this book, to save the poor woman's little home from being sold under a mortgage, and letters and facts.

Talk about Harriet Tubman: The Moses of Her People

People who sacrifice all in the service of others are quite rare these days. Perhaps this is so as we no longer have a sense of purpose to direct our lives. This was not the case of Harriet Tubman, truly the Moses of all those who loved freedom. During America's time of slavery no one currently can truly fathom the horror endured by the slaves. But, thanks to the "Lawd" Lord as Harriet would say helped us to know that through our faith we can understand, but more importantly, act on our beliefs.
Once again devout Christians, black and white, fought and many were killed in order that a few may have their humanity returned to them. Mentioned was Captain John Brown, an evangelical Christian, who lost his two sons and his own life in the struggle against slavery. Harriet would often speak highly of Captain John Brown.
Harriet's exploits and harrowing adventures were so courageous and filled with horror that the reader is left to feel that she and her "contraband" would be caught at anytime. And yet she and all the others escaped. When Harriet was asked about the Underground Rail Road she quipped "I'd neber lossa a passenger!" This was hard to believe that just one person could do so much by faith alone.
The book is way too short but it had to be this way as her exploits were all passed on by word of mouth to keep her and her passengers safe. I totally understand.
A must read for all Americans, especially in our schools!

“Harriet Tubman: The Moses of Her People” is a biography written while Mrs. Tubman was still alive. The author indicates it is a second edition written to raise funds for a negro hospital in Auburn, New York, which she stated was Mrs. Tubman’s last great work. This book bounces around and is primarily a collection of short anecdotes, letters, and even some written passes permitting her access during the Civil War.

You would think the book might focus heavily on Mrs. Tubman’s experiences with the “Underground Railroad”, especially since she publically laid claim to being a conductor. At one meeting she stated, "I was the conductor of the Underground Railroad for eight years, and I can say what most conductors can't say; I never ran my train off the track and I never lost a passenger." There are letters and stories that cover her liberation raids into the South, but the book does not go into detail. Along with these are a few scenes going back to her childhood when she was a slave, her involvement and wonder at the abolitionist John Brown, her involvement in the Civil War as a spy and nurse, and some events after the war. Given all of those activities, the author didn’t spend much time on any one area, but two things were prominent throughout, and this is Mrs. Tubman’s humility and trust in God. There are numerous references throughout the book that showed her dependence on God such as “‘Oh, dear Lord’, [she] said. I haven’t got no friend but you. Come to my help Lord, for I’m in trouble! Oh, Lord! You’ve been with me in six troubles, don’t desert me in the seventh!”

Many of the stories seem like they belong more to folklore than actual events, especially when she claims to have foreseen events and natural disasters and would seem to just fall into money and provisions when she needed them – of course, she would say that was God’s will at work to provide for her. Even if a quarter of the stories are true, Harriet Tubman was a remarkable woman who was truly a Moses of her people. Despite her lack of education and being born into slavers, she used her leadership skills and trust in God to help save her literal family, as well as, many other slaves.

Albeit not a complete biography of Harriet Tubman I would qualify it as a very important one being that it was written during her life by a lady who knew her well and many of those whose lives were affected or came in contact with or contributed a letter to the work. I find it astonishing that Mrs. Tubman managed to accomplish not several but nineteen trips to the south to rescue her people from bondage to freedom in Canada, worked as a spy, nurse and where needed for the Union Army during the Civil War, established a hospital for her people and joined the suffrage movement. A champion of her people she never wavered from her trust in the Lord and the path she felt was ordained to follow led her forward. I acquired this book free from the public domain and I hope others will take advantage of it being made available. This is a more personal look into the life of a amazing woman that any written biography could be. Including interviews in her own voice, songs sung on the way to freedom, the challenges she faced, letters and correspondence with notable people of the time.
