I like to think of Harriet Tubman. The people and places that helped shape our country also have stories to tell, and increasingly these stories are being protected by our National Park System. Harriet Tubman who carried a revolver, who had a scar on her head from a rock thrown by a slave-master (because she talked back), and who had a ran. ore information. In honor of African American History Month, these parks can teach you something about some of our most important – and often overlooked – stories of African American history.

Born into slavery, young Harriet Tubman knew only hard work and hunger. Escape seemed impossible - certainly dangerous. Yet Harriet did escape North, by the secret route called the Underground Railroad. Harriet didn't forget her people. Again and again she risked her life to lead them on the same secret, dangerous journey.

Talk about Freedom Train: The Story of Harriet Tubman

This was an excellent book; well written, and fantastically interesting. A 3rd grader I mentor showed me a simpler version of Harriet Tubman's story and was excited to have read it. I had an old copy of this exact book (different cover, earlier publication) that I read and was amazed at Harriet's life. I had heard only the abbreviated, textbook version in my youth, so this was an eye-opener as far as understanding history. Her individual story makes that part of history come alive. I bought this copy so I could give my student this more detailed accounting of Harriet's story. (Since she had so recently read the short version (golden book style), I told her to save it for summer.)
I would certainly recommend this book to anyone with any interest in history, good biography, or just an engrossing story. It is all that. Harriet Tubman was an exceptional person. Much of the story is taken from notes transcribed after each of her trips "driving" the "Freedom Train", so the facts were gathered contemporaneously to her adventures, making them probably more reliable and detailed. Read it, you'll like it.
My 5th grader loves loves loves this book!
A very informative book for young readers about the courageous life of Harriet Tubman. A truly remarkable woman and leader. The book was accessible and well written. My 7 & 8 year old enjoyed it very much. I, myself, learned a lot from this book.
This is a must read for anyone with an interest in history, especially Black history.
A great read!
This book is enriched with tons of history as well as life experiences that can be talked about. The book is also enriched with higher order thinking and kids can make teachable connections.

One of my daughters needed this book for class but all three of them have read it!
Good book. No problems. Did not finish only because I took a chance on reading it to a younger listener.
