The biography of one of the best-known “conductors” on the Underground Railroad was first published in 1869 although privately printed to help raise money for Harriet Tubman. It tells of Harriet’s childhood as a slave and her dangerous life helping runaways make it to Canada. It also recalls her experiences as a Civil War nurse, cook and scout for the Union Army as well as her efforts at the war’s end in aiding and educating former slaves. 81 pages.
