Ann Petry has written a thoughtful narrative of Harriet Tubman's life from birth to death. The text is easy to understand and the flow of the story is there, watching Harriet's life. The details draw you in and make you believe that you are in the same time. I recommend this book to young readers who enjoy biographies and people with strong character. ( )

Ann Petry's HARRIET TUBMAN offers a succinct, comprehensive, and smooth retelling of the life of this astonishing, strong, and brave woman.

Chapter descriptions of her years and her many friends and rescues in The Underground Railroad alternate with historical evidence from a variety of sources.

The memory of Harriet Tubman will resonate with both kids and adults. ( )

Not quite a biography and not quite a novel, Harriet Tubman is a prime example of creative nonfiction. Using simple, lucid, accessible language, Petry palpably captures Tubman’s inner life as she yearns for freedom and finally achieves it after a daring escape. Throughout her subsequent adventures as conductor on the Underground Railroad, recruiter for the Harpers Ferry raid, scout for the Union Army, and suffragist, we get a vivid sense of her motivations, convictions, hopes, fears, and doubts.

While the book follows a simple trajectory—from Tubman’s birth (circa 1822) to her death in 1913—Petry uses a brilliant splicing device to situate Tubman’s life in a wider historical context: each chapter ends with an italicized segment describing an important event that took place elsewhere during that phase of Tubman’s life and offering a preview of how the key players would eventually cross paths with Tubman.

The back matter includes a good index and a timeline that situates Tubman’s many milestones alongside events such as the publication of Uncle Tom’s Cabin and the issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation. This edition also features a Discussion Questions page and an Extension Activities page, both of which offer useful ways to enhance classroom study.

My only complaint about the book is its lack of visual content. None of the many striking photographs of Tubman are used in this edition, so the readers can only get an impression of her famously determined scowl from the somewhat cartoonish jacket illustration. And given the importance of geography in the text itself—North vs. South, the shifting borders to freedom after the Fugitive Slave Act—I would love to have seen some maps of Tubman’s routes at the very least, but the book is disappointingly gray once you get past the inside flap.

This book can be used in Black History Month (February). It is also very useful to teach a lesson on biographies. I really respect Harriet Tubman's message and would love to incorporate her into my classroom.
