Publisher's summary

They called her "Minty".

When she grew up, she became Harriet Tubman, the courageous and heroic woman who helped hundreds of slaves escape to freedom through the Underground Railroad. But she was just a little girl for a while - and this is her story. 

Minty, short for Araminta, was a feisty and headstrong young slave whose rebellious spirit often got her into trouble.

"Rich with melodrama, suspense, pathos, and, of course, a powerful vision of freedom. This exquisitely crafted book resonates well beyond its few pages." (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)

Winner of the Coretta Scott King Award.

An ALA notable book.
