Little People, Big Dreams: Harriet Tubmanquarto
In the inspiring Little People, Big Dreams series, discover the incredible lives of outstanding women from designers and artists to scientists and adventurers. All of them went on to achieve incredible things, yet all of them began life as a little girl with a dream.
Harriet Tubman, an Underground Railroad conductor who "never lost a single passenger" in this true story of her life. Little Harriet was born into slavery in Maryland and labored in the fields from the age of 12. But as an adult, she escaped, freeing herself before returning back to lead hundreds of enslaved African Americans to freedom with great bravery and courage. Harriet sacrificed so much of her life for others, eventually working for the army in the Civil War and then promoting women's voting rights until she retired in Auburn, New York.
With stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, this empowering series celebrates the important life stories of significant women of the world.
