Araminta Ross was born a slave in Delaware in the early 19th century. Slavery meant that her family could be ripped apart at any time, and that she could be put to work in dangerous places and for abusive people. But north of the Mason-Dixon line, slavery was illegal. If she could run away and make it north without being caught or killed, she'd be free. Facing enormous danger, Araminta made it, and once free, she changed her name to Harriet Tubman. Tubman spent the rest of her life helping slaves run away like she did, every time taking her life in her hands.

Truth is stranger than fiction in this engaging biography. Master taking away a runaway slave is his brother. Tubman's family owned by two white family members get into twenty year legal feud over who get what. Tubman reunited with John Brown supporter in the American civil war. Graphic novel much better getting the message than dry biographies. Cute touch of hangman making a sandcastle in the unexplored area of historical United States map & the redcoat chastising him.
