Praise

“Compelling . . . memorable . . . Tubman [takes] her rightful place as a visionary and a selfless leader.”USA Today
 
“It is a risky business to tamper with a national icon and trickier still to convey the full dimension of the individual behind the legend. But Kate Clifford Larson has accomplished both in her brilliant biography.”Smithsonian Magazine
 
“Epic . . . written with passion for the subject and meticulous attention to detail . . . [Larson’s] book is nothing less than an encyclopedic chronicle of a rip-roaring American adventure.”The San Antonio Express-News
 
“Skillfully written . . . Larson’s book includes several maps that help readers understand the workings of the Underground Railroad. . . . Larson present[s] a richly drawn portrait of Tubman as a deeply spiritual woman, a ‘Moses’ and ‘Joan of Ark’ as contemporaries were wont to describe her.”The Charlotte Observer
 
“An engrossing biography of an extraordinary woman.”—Green Bay Press–Gazette
 
“Mesmerizing and exceedingly well-documented . . . As Larson recounts in absorbing incident after absorbing incident, the brilliant Harriet Tubman was courageous, witty, and as determined as a body could be.”Bay State Banner
 
“Historian Kate Clifford Larson gives Tubman the powerful, intimate, meticulously detailed life she deserves.” The Herald American
 
“A marvel of impressive scholarship and lucid prose.”The Seattle Times
 
“Although Tubman’s life story has been told before, it has never been told in such a comprehensive way.”—(Salt Lake City) Deseret Morning News
 
“Larson’s thorough and readable effort is a must for armchair historians who haven’t looked at Tubman in a while, if ever.”Cape Cod Times
