Reviews

"A thrilling reading experience. It expands outward from Tubman's individual story to give a sweeping, historical vision of slavery."--NPR's Fresh Air
"Clinton's well-researched book reveals Harriet Tubman to be even more remarkable than her legend."--Liza Featherstone, Newsday
"Superior. Clinton wisely keeps the focus on Tubman and her remarkable life...This compelling biography brings alive the passion of those tormented times."--Deirdre Donahue, USA Today
"A lucid, well-researched biography that contextualizes a remarkable life in all its remarkable accomplishment."--Darryl Lorenzo Wellington, Christian Science Monitor
"Reads more like an adventure tale than a history lesson...This biography provides an in-depth look at Harriet Tubman and holds moments of wonder for readers."--Bernadette Adams Davis, BookPage
