Who Was Harriet Tubman? Audiobook

Who Was Harriet Tubman?

Born a slave in Maryland, Harriet Tubman knew first-hand what it meant to be someone's property; she was whipped by owners and almost killed by an overseer. It was from other field hands that she first heard about the Underground Railroad which she travelled by herself north to Philadelphia. Throughout her long life (she died at the age of 92) and long after the Civil War brought an end to slavery, this amazing woman was proof of what just one person can do.

    "They should tell you that the book is for kids"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I bought the book not realizing that it was for children. Turned out to be a waste of my money.
