Evocative and rich in both tone and style, this beautifully illustrated book follows Harriet Tubman on her first trip to Freedom as she escapes north on the Underground Railroad. The lyrical text gives meaning not only to her physical journey to freedom, but her spiritual journey as well as she draws upon God for comfort, subsistence and help to guide her along each step of the way. Haunting and soothing simultaneously, the gorgeous illustrations and swirling poetry will surely make this book a favorite. 44 pages, reinforced binding; hardcover with dust jacket. Ages 5-8.
