Before She Was Harriet

Before She Was Harriet by Lesa Cline-Ransome, illustrated by James E. Ransome, begins with an elderly Harriet Tubman thinking back over a life filled with heroic and varying roles, all under different names. She was a nurse, spy, Underground Railroad guide, suffragist and leader of slaves struggling to find freedom. The watercolors that accompany the spare but powerful text bring her to life exquisitely. Highly recommended. (Non-Fiction) Biography
