Born enslaved, Harriet Tubman rose up to become one of the most successful, determined and well-known conductors of the Underground Railroad. With her family's love planted firmly in her heart, Harriet looked to the North Star for guidance — and its light helped guide her way out of slavery. Her courage made it possible for her to help others reach freedom too.
Inspired by the #1 New York Times bestselling series She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton and Alexandra Boiger comes a chapter book that teaches young readers all about Tubman's inspiring life, and how her persistence changed the world. Written by bestselling and award-winning author Andrea Davis Pinkney, with black and white illustrations by Gillian Flint, this is the perfect early chapter book for emerging readers eager to learn more about women who stood up, spoke up and rose up against the odds.
