Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2001 Fall)
Using as a framework a story about Tubman's leading a slave family's escape through the Underground Railroad, this brief biography summarizes Tubman's life, from her birth as a slave in Maryland to her service as a ""Moses of Her People"" before, during, and after the Civil War. Soft, rather static illustrations accompany the text, whose short sentences and somewhat abrupt transitions struggle to convey complex material in simple form. Copyright 2001 Horn Book Guide Reviews
