Harriet Tubman was the greatest “conductor” on the Underground Railroad, the organized network of way stations which helped black slaves escape from the South to the free states and as far north as Canada. For more than 10 years before the Civil War, she made 20 trips from the North to the South, rescuing more than 300 salves.

Harriet Tubman, The Moses of Her People, is the fascinating story of a remarkable woman who fled slavery, then courageously guided runaway slaves to freedom—while a $40,000 bounty was put on her life. It is also the story of her days serving as a nurse, soldier, spy, and scout for the Union Army; her vigorous fight for women’s suffrage; and her later years when she continued to work for the rights of blacks and women.
