“What a glorious book! Kate Clifford Larson’s magnificent biography of the life of the real Harriet Tubman deserves the nation’s attention. . . . With clarity, grace, and skill, Larson brilliantly captures the truly remarkable spirit of a genuine American heroine. We are all in Larson’s debt.”
Coauthor, A Shining Thread of Hope: The History of Black Women in America
The Emeline Bigelow Conland Fellow at Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study

“An extraordinary achievement. Heroically researched, movingly written, it transforms a legend into a flesh-and-blood human being and brings a critical era in our history vividly to life.”
Julia Cherry Spruill Professor of History,
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

“Harriet Tubman’s life as a warrior woman is elegantly captured in Kate Clifford Larson’s riveting biography. . . . Bound for the Promised Land is the story of a legendary woman we thought we knew, but Larson’s portrait is more focused, more complex, more satisfying.”
