Review:

Author Kem Knapp Sawyer brings Tubman's legacy up to date, including new scholarly studies that "give a fair representation" to Harriet Tubman. Kids will appreciate the pictures, drawings, reproductions of letters and handbills, and the wealth of sidebars that serve to explain details in the main story. If your child wants a good biography for fun or for class assignment, look for this one. Perfect for 9- to 12-year-olds, "DK Biography: Harriet Tubman" is a book to seek out. --Cape Cod Times, January 31, 2010(syndicated regionally)

"The titles in the DK Biography series set a detailed personal life story within the context of history. The story told in Harriet Tubman begins with her life under slavery. Meticulous about what is known and what is not confirmed, the simple prose is eloquent in describing how Tubman started as a passenger on the Underground Railroad and went on to become one of its most famous conductors, with examples of her amazing physical stamina, courage, and cunning. Highly readable, the series design, with highly legible type on thick paper, includes color photographs and prints on every spread; sidebars that detail the political history and important leaders; and spacious back matter with a comprehensive time line, bibliography, and fully documented chapter notes." --Booklist, May 1, 2010
