Publisher's Summary

From her life as a slave child who was whipped for stealing a lump of sugar, to her role as a leader in the Underground Railroad, and as a nurse and spy during the Civil War, Harriet Tubman lived a fascinating life that is clearly presented in A Book of Harriet Tubman. This lively biography is well-paced and includes the added feature of brief songs that set the tone of the times.

Frederick Douglass, born into slavery in 1818, escaped to freedom in 1838 and became a great leader in the abolitionist movement. In A Picture Book of Frederick Douglass his struggles and determination, as well as his accomplishments as a writer, orator, and important figure of the 19th century are clearly and expressively outlined.
