I read this book about a million times growing up. There is something about Harriet Tubman and her heart for people that inspired me at a young age to do whatever I could to love people, no matter what the cost.
We read this book as a novel in reading class and I thought this book was amazing.
The book is about Harriet Tubman. She was born a slave. Her original name was Minty. Her owner was Thomas and he took her away from her parents to live with Miss Susan. Miss Susan was very mean. If Minty did something wrong she'd get whipped but it wasn't her fault because she know how to do some of the things they asked of her like knit and sweep.
I'll want to talk with Sam about the book but I think she can handle it at this point. It's not overly violent or upsetting, other than the fact that slavery in and of itself is upsetting.
Braden liked this book better than the historical fiction book about H. Tubman, "Listen for the Whippoorwill".
