Harriet Tubman was born enslaved, but she had the courage to run to freedom – and then the courage to return, over and over, to help more slaves find their way to safety. As a conductor for the Underground Railroad, Tubman never lost a "passenger." But in order to help even more people, Tubman continued her fight for freedom as a master spy for the North during the Civil War!The friendly, fun Ordinary People Change the World picture book biography series focuses on the traits that made our heroes great -- the traits that kids can aspire to in order to live heroically themselves. Each book tells the story of one of America's icons in a lively, conversational way that works well for the youngest nonfiction readers and that always includes the hero's childhood influences. At the back are an excellent timeline and photos.
