This is truly a life-changing book! I am in awe of all that Harriet Tubman did and sacrificed to save so many people! And in the midst of everything she endured, she continually praised God for His help and guidance in her life! It is an engaging read that I have read more than once, and has caused me to ask how I can be more faithful and enduring as she was! She is a true hero!
I love having it in my home, and constantly recommend it to others!

This book is VERY well written. I love the fact that this woman was so courageous, not only for herself but she was so willing to selflessly help others have what she had. I also love that even though she was born into a bad situation, she didn’t let that drag her down; she was positive, and she moved forward with her life in the very best way that she could. I love that she trusted God and let Him be her guide. This is my favorite book from The Good and the Beautiful Library so far.

“…there was one of two things I had a right to, liberty, or death; if I could not have one, I would have de oder; for no man should take me alive; I should fight for my liberty as long as my strength lasted, and when de time came for me to go, de Lord would let dem take me.”

Harriet, The Moses of Her People is an inspiring true story of Harriet Tubman and her tremendous impact for good during a time of much oppression and hardship.
As an enslaved woman, Harriet experienced countless adversities and cruelty. “Why should such things be?” she often pondered. Even as a child, she knew slavery was wrong and must end. As a young woman, Harriet slipped away from her slave master one night. Alone, she courageously made her journey to the North, where freedom awaited her.

Harriet eventually gained her freedom and, despite great peril and hardship, returned many times to the South to free her family members and hundreds of others.

A woman of deep faith, courage, and love, Harriet prayed with complete trust that the Lord would hear and answer her prayers. She was fearless, for she knew God was at the helm and would guide her steps. Harriet’s life is an example of dedicated service to God and to her neighbors. Truly she, like Moses, lived the commandments of God and, with His help, delivered her people.
