Born into slavery, young Harriet Tubman knew only hard work and hunger. Escape seemed impossible — certainly dangerous. Yet Harriet was strong-willed and courageous. “Some day,” she said, “I’m going to be free.”
When finally she did escape North, by the secret route called the “Underground Railroad,” Harriet didn’t forget her people. Again and again she risked her life to lead them on the same secret, dangerous journey.
Freedom Train is the exciting, true story of Harriet Tubman’s bold and daring life.
