For students ages eight to fourteen, the MY AMERICAN JOURNEY series presents a true history of the United States with a cleverly helpful dose of fiction. Each of these first four books (in a projected series of ten) recounts highlights from the life of a true American founder or social pioneer. But to engage a student's interest from page one, a fictional narrator-usually a school-age person who somehow knew the main hero-tells the story with youthful vigor. Adding to Deborah Hedstrom-Page's unique lessons are plentiful illustrations from Sergio Martinez (Max Lucado's You Are Special). Each book also contains study questions for every chapter and other educational helps. Harriet Tubman (1822-1913) was an African-American abolitionist. Born into slavery herself, she helped hundreds of slaves escape to the North via the Underground Railroad during the Civil War.
