40983: Courage to Run: A Story Based on the Life of Harriet Tubman Courage to Run: A Story Based on the Life of Harriet Tubman
By Wendy Lawton / Moody Publishers

Born Arminta Ross, young Harriet Tubman (named after her mother when she was full-grown) was a faithful strong girl growing up in the late 1800's as a slave in the south. Her faith was at the center of everything she did and she was tested at every turn. The story of her childhood is a record of courage and bravery. Even more, it's the story of God's faithfulness as he prepares her to eventually lead more than 300 people out of slavery through the Underground Railroad. For ages 8-12.

At age six the sharp bite of the whip taught Harriet Tubman what it meant to be a slave. The other slaves scoffed when Harriet resolved to escape to the north someday. Little did they know that this girl would one day lead hundreds of slaves to freedome on the Underground Railroad. Even huge rewards for her capture-dead or alive-did not stop Harriet from risking her life again and again in the fight for liberty as the nation spiraled toward the Civil War. Whether running from slave hunters, advising generals, or improving conditions in war hospitals, remarkable Harriet Tubman would not be satisfied until every person could experience true freedom.
