Has a story-telling rather than historical fact approach I alternately find fun and annoying. Decent background, though - and an excellent bibliography. I love when authors show their sources.

Born into slavery, young Harriet Tubman knew only hard work and hunger. Escape seemed impossible - certainly dangerous. Yet Harriet was strong-willed and courageous.
