Review: The Story of Harriet Tubman: Conductor of the Underground Railroad

User Review  - Natalie - Goodreads

I'll want to talk with Sam about the book but I think she can handle it at this point. It's not overly violent or upsetting, other than the fact that slavery in and of itself is upsetting. Read full review
