This biography of Harriet Tubman was written during her lifetime as a fundraiser, the first edition to pay off the mortgage on Harriet's home to keep it from being sold, and the second edition to finance a hospital for African Americans.

Harriet Tubman, who escaped from servitude in Maryland in 1849, returned south nineteen times, at great risk, to lead more than 300 slaves to freedom in the northern states and in Canada. Endowed with tremendous physical courage, ingenuity and faith, she never lost a fugitive and successfully evaded her own capture. -- The Classics of Liberty
