About the Book
In lyrical text, Weatherford describes Tubman's spiritual journey as she hears the voice of God guiding her North to freedom on that first trip to escape slavery.
From the Publisher
This poetic book is a resounding tribute to Tubman's strength, humility, and devotion. With proper reverence, Weatherford and Nelson do justice to the woman who, long ago, earned over and over the name Moses.
