Bound for the Promised Land
By: Kate Clifford Larson
Harriet Tubman, Portrait of an American Hero
Harriet Tubman is one of the most well-known figures in the history of the American anti-slavery movement. Born a slave, she embarked on a perilous journey of self-liberation, and then, having won her own freedom, returned again and again to liberate family and friends, tapping into the Underground Railroad. Bound for the Promised Land draws from a trove of documents and sources, as well as extensive genealogical research, to strip away myths and misconceptions and reveal a new understanding of Tubman’s life as an abolitionist, Civil War spy, and civil rights activist.
