    Because Harriet Tubman was illiterate this book is the closest we shall come to having an autobiography of her The uality of the writing is indifferent; the book reads like a long magazine article than a biography Tubman's zeal and courage are evident in these pages but the lack of reflection on the conflicts and choices she faced makes the book hagiography than biography Of course some subjects of hagiography really are saints and if there be such a concept within the realm of liberators Tubman is surely one

    This is a touching rehearsal of the exploits of a self emancipated slave who poured herself into helping other self emancipated slaves to flee to areas where they'd be safe The volume is primarily made up of select tales from Harriet Tubman told to Sarah Bradford who left out any tales she could not corroborate The material also includes testimonials from many who knew her during these yearsScenes in the Life of Harriet Tubman is short and easy to read A few of the stories brought me to tears and many brought me to prayer Thanks to Librivox for providing the book in audio form and to Sue Anderson for taking the time to record it Since this is Black History Month February 2018 this book makes for great first hand historical background and context I highly recommend the book

    I read this to get a better idea of Tubman who's on her way to the front of the 20This is a uick read two hours topsIt's available online here This is an 1869 book written to document Harriet Tubman's exploits before and during the Civil War in hopes of getting her some form of government pension for her work This attempt failedThe author spends a lot of attention to documenting Tubman's adventures lest Tubman be accused of exaggerating what is really an incredible and heroic story

    The title of this is very apropos It was scenes in her life rather than a biography It might be a good overview for someone who doesn't know much about her life I was looking for something to fill in a few details There is also some controversy over certain things related to Harriet Tubman's activities on the Underground Railroad Having read this it makes me wonder if this book is where things started Bradford said she didn't want to include things she couldn't substantiate However there were several times when things came up like Harriet could only tell about 11 or 12 journeys to the south but her friends say she made at least 19 trips The 19 trips is the one that has stuck The same thing with the number of passengers she saved at 300 but historians can only document less than 40 Harriet only knew about a 12000 price on her head A newspaper said it wasn't unreasonable to have a 40000 price and that is the number that has stuck It makes me wonder what is fact and what is exaggeration Although I'm certain the greater numbers were the ones believed by Bradford I'm just not 100% sure what is actual history

    25 stars okI found the writing in this book a little dry but Harriet's character was still able to shine through a bit
