    A lot of research went into this book to get the style and elements of the story right for the time But it s not an easy read Not that it should be our history is our history, but reading about an 8 year old getting whipped is hard And infuriating We also get to read about how Harriet Tubman learned the skills to survive and find her way north Overall, a great book I read this book as part of the Coretta Scott King Book Awards 50th anniversary challenge promoted through the LA Public Libra A lot of research went into this book to get the style and elements of the story right for the time But it s not an easy read Not that it should be our histor...
