"I Am Harriet Tubman" by Grace Norwich was a wonderfully well written novel. 
This was a biography of Ms. Tubman's 'struggles and success for both civil and women's rights.'  From the reading we find that Harriet Tubman not only escaped  slavery by helping  others but  many times only to be found risking her own life in the process in her determination to 'create a better 'America.'  All I can say is that you will have to pick up this read by the author to see just what all this series holds. Be ready for 'series features full-color illustrated covers, one-color illustrations throughout, a timeline, an introduction to the people you'll meet in the book, maps, sidebars, and a top-ten list of important things to know about each hero.'  I found this a very interesting read and I would recommend this read to you as a excellent read.
