    Born enslaved, Harriet Tubman rose up to become one of the most successful, determined and well-known conductors of the Underground Railroad.

Her courage made it possible for her to help others reach freedom too.

    In this chapter book biography by bestselling and award-winning author Andrea Davis Pinkney, readers learn about the amazing life of Harriet Tubman—and how she persisted. Complete with an introduction from Chelsea Clinton!
