    Short biography (43 pages) of Harriet Tubman who fought against the savagery of American Slavery and worked the Underground railroad which tried to bring slave captives to the North and Canada to freedom and campaign for the abolition of slavery. Very short so it doesn't give a lot of details but it doesn't mince words about the barbarism of slavery in the beginning of the book.

    I can't believe how much information was kept from us about her during school. I loved to learn the fact she had the exact same disability that I do and I felt more connected to her because of that. This was truly inspiring and I can't wait to read more about her.

    Araminta Ross was probably born in 1822. The exact year is impossible to ascertain, much less the date, due to the insignificance placed on the birth of yet another slave. This institution that would one day divide the country and bring about a brother versus brother war before its irradiation, and eventually form one nation under God. The slave, Araminta Ross married John Tubman, a free black, in 1844. Around this time she changes her first name to Harriet; probably in honor of her mother. Harr Araminta Ross was probably born in 1822. The exact year is impossible to ascertain, much less the date, due to the insignificance placed on the birth of yet another slave. This institution that would one day divide the country and bring about a brother versus brother war before its irradiation, and eventually form one nation under God. The slave, Araminta Ross married John Tubman, a free black, in 1844. Around this time she changes her first name to Harriet; probably in honor of her mother. Harriet wasted little time before seeking her own freedom by going north. The cause she embraced brought her often into the precarious jaws of danger. This, however, didn’t deter her from her chosen path. As a conductor on the Underground Railroad, she successfully led thousands of runaway slaves to freedom in the northern states and Canada. In 1861, war broke out between the United States and the upstart new nation of the Confederate States of America. Harriet put herself in harm’s way to help the Union in their endeavors to bring the war to a successful conclusion. Her selflessness and contribution to freedom wasn’t really recognized or valued during her lifetime and only after her death, her true contributions to the call of freedom were rightly recognized. In the conclusion of this narrative it is stated that, through circumstances, greatness was thrust upon her. I disagree with this statement as Harriet willingly embraced the hardships and dangers her actions brought. In my opinion, true bravery stems from dangerous acts willingly performed despite the peril. My two-star rating is in no way a reflection of the life and deeds of Harriet Tubman but entirely due to the repetitive and uninspiring approach to this truly great humanitarian. This is, by far, the lowest rated book in a great series of historical books. Providing bird’s eye views of historical persons and events, Hourly History serves as a constant inspiration to know more about the people and events that make our world what it is today.

    This is a short biography on  the 19th Century American activist Harriet Tubman, whose activities included fighting for the abolition of slavery in the United States, transporting slaves from  slave states to the progressive Northern free states, fighting the civil war on  the side of the Union and eventually, fighting for women’s suffrage.  The book starts with the history of slavery in the United States, then moving on to the family which Harriet served, the brutality that she had to withstand This is a short biography on  the 19th Century American activist Harriet Tubman, whose activities included fighting for the abolition of slavery in the United States, transporting slaves from  slave states to the progressive Northern free states, fighting the civil war on  the side of the Union and eventually, fighting for women’s suffrage.  The book starts with the history of slavery in the United States, then moving on to the family which Harriet served, the brutality that she had to withstand which led her to attempt to escape. The book then focuses on how she used the Underground Railroad to rescue slaves from the Southern states and her eventual role in the Civil War and how her knowledge of the rail roads helped the Union. The book also focused on the role of religion in her life which proved to be a driving factor in her taking up such daring tasks. The book covered the issue of slavery in the United States very well and it also described the attempts of Tubman’s escape in good detail. The book also did a good job in bringing out the various aspects of her life, personal, religious, the abolitionist and the suffragist. However, I felt that the book was more on slavery in the United States than it was on an individual. The book started with the attitudes of various Presidents towards slavery and then, going on  to describe a lot of achievements of Frederick Douglass and eventually, even a short note Martin Luther King Jr. towards the conclusion that I felt I was reading a book more on slavery and civil rights than on a particular individual. The book was certainly informative, but I felt it was under the wrong title and I guess that is the reason why I would have to downgrade the book to a rating of two.

    Poorly written with inconsistencies and repetition. I learned very little about Harriet Tubman in the 20 min it took to read this book. You'll learn more from Wikipedia. Complete waste of time. I wish I could give it no stars.

She married John Tubman, a free black man and changed her name to Harriet Tubman. She is a small woman only 5 feet tall, but she runs away to the north. She risked her own life of being captured or possible death if caught or caught by dogs. As she helps others escape she lived in proverty, any money she received she gave to the run aways that she was helping. Harriet became the Conductor of the Underground Railroad, meaning she learned the routes to the Northern States and Canada and where all the safe houses were, where they could sleep and eat on their way to freedom. During her lifetime she never got caught, she helped thousands of slaves escape to freedom, also helped the Union Soldiers. After the Civil War and the slaves were free. Harriet joined the Women's Suffrage Movement to vote although she did not see this happen in her life time. Harriet Tubman's legacy lives on for all that she did and gave up to help others during her life time. I enjoy these short history books whenever I read them it makes me want to know more. Thanks for sharing this information

    Harriet Tubman was truly a courageous hero. Over the course of her life she made many expeditions guiding slaves along the underground railroad to freedom. A runaway slave herself, she is credited with bringing more than 300 slaves to freedom, for which she was never captured. The end of her expeditions did not mark the end of her activism. In 1863 she became the first woman to lead an armed assault in the Civil War. After the war she was involved in activism for women's rights.

Harriet Tubman is an inspiration to all Americans who struggle for their rights, regardless of race. The material in this book is five stars in every way. However, the writer of this biography did not do a very good job. This book repeated itself, sometimes three times. While the subject is superior, the arrangement of the material was poor. I give the writing three stars.

    And There Is Even A Movie! Many works of truth and of fiction have been written about the Underground Railroad and those who served as its conductors. Harriett Tubman is one of these conductors. A slave herself, once she escaped, she dedicated herself to helping many other slaves. This brief “Hourly History” is a summation of her life. Of who she was and how she helped her people and hundreds of others even though she herself suffered poverty and illness. I must admit I learned a great deal about And There Is Even A Movie!

    An inspiring read I studied history in school and one of the most sell taught subject was slavery and the negative implications it left on the black population. Its very remarkable and admirable that a woman would go through such victorious heights and risk her life to save the lives of thousands of slaves. Hourly History performs a great job in presenting events and personalities with great importance to readers worldwide in a presentable form and with such amazing content.

    Review by TevinGM Good book. So interesting that you you want to read more. I would recommend this book or that kind of format to any teacher struggling to get the pupils interested in history. The format is perfect: short enough to get people reading it, so well written that the readers would like to know more. At least, that was my case.

    I do love an Hourly History .. Good to have a few on your kindle as a filler read .. I had heard the name Harriet Tubman before, but had no real knowledge of her life and the reason the name rang a bell .. A fascinating insight into the life of a true inspiration of American history .. I have saved a few highlights as a reminder ..

    Harriet Tubman was an amazing women who has made a huge impact on our culture and to the world. She deserves better than what this volume offers. I've read 35 Hourly Histories: A life from Beginning to End, and this book was a disappointment. Half of the book repeats what was said earlier, and the intro was pretty much a copy of the intro to the companion Frederick Douglas volume.

    Quick But Interesting This was a very quick read but I learned more about Harriet Tubman’s life reading this than when I saw the movie about her. I wish the movie had continued with her life after her work with the Underground Railroad. She did so much. She truly was an amazing woman. There is one little nitpicking thing I have to add. It says in 1870 blacks were allowed to vote. That should be changed to ‘black men’. All women had to wait for fifty more years to vote.

    NY Thank you for writing this informative book about a great American hero. I hope that those who read this are inspired to visit the Harriet Tubman National Park in Auburn, New York. After reading this , I am reminded that we have done injustice again to Harriet Tubman by not putting her image on the $20 .

    To be honest, this felt like one of the high school papers I have graded in the past. It was clumsily written, with random tidbits of information that the only purpose of seemingly was to make the book longer. Like I said, seemed like a high school history project than a nonfiction informative and educational book.

    Inspiration Harriet Tubman has inspired me my whole life. I wrote a report on her in middle school and to this day am motivated by her selfless life of service and commitment to freedom. Without a penny to her name, she sacrificed and risked her life for others. She taught me that anything is possible no matter the challenge.
