Harriet Tubman was a wily slave. Having narrowly escaped murder as a teenager when a slave overseer smacked her in the head with an iron weight, she fled from slavery by following the North Star to freedom. She helped more than three hundred slaves run away through the Underground Railroad, and was amazingly never caught. During the Civil War she acted as a spy and earned money by selling pies and root beer to the soldiers. --publisher website.
