I have always heard about the "Underground Railroad" but never really took the time to understand it's history. This book is every good place to start. There should be a "Harriet Tubman" Day. She was as important to the freeing the slaves and the civil rights movement as Lincoln and Martin Luther King, I researched in hopes to find a movie about her. I could not find any. Harriet story would make a WONDERFUL movie. If done correctly it could walk away with all the Oscars. This is a must read book! The performance of the book was good, but as with most of the Audible books, I had tp change the speed to 1 1/2x from 1x

I'm so glad I happened to be in the front seat of a taxi from Harlem to Central Park as it was the statue of Harriet Tubman that made her known to me. And now she's appearing on American bank notes, apparently. A truly courageous and selfless woman in a shameful period in human history.
This is such an inspiring story and very well told. I was impressed with the way the great figure of Harriet Tubman was personalised and made more humane. Despite her own heartaches, always been there for others. Her tenacity and courage in the face of such overwhelming negative odds, she always manage to stay on course.
This book is written in an easy to read style, allowing the reader to feel the emotions, danger and adventures along with Harriet.
