Reviews - What do customers think about Go Free or Die: A Story About Harriet Tubman (Carolrhoda Creative Minds Book)?

A Dangerous Journey to Freedom  Jun 2, 2005
This compelling work of historical fiction describes the childhood and the dangerous journey of Harriet Tubman (1820-1913) along the Underground Railroad to freedom. The story describes Tubman's life from age 6 to 24. The author supplies vivid details about Tubman's parents, overseers, and her journey. An Author's Note and generous Epilogue supply an overview of biographical details not set out in the story. Numerous rich full-page pencil drawings by Karen Ritz enhance the text. I recommend this book to any school community.
Review by Don K.
Don't give up  Jan 14, 2005
5. The book is about Harriet Tubman and her getting free. She got taking away from her mother when she was young. She thought she would never get to see her mother again. But one day she got sick and they let her go back to her mother. She didn't have to go back because she never really got well. She finally got well enough that she could go outside.
6. I think the story is a great story and I thnk anyone should read it.
7.I think the story had irony in it because I didn't think that she would see her mother again and I didn't think she would get sick either.
8. I rated the book five stars because it's the perfect book to read and the book is for anyone.
Go Free or Die  Dec 12, 2002
My book is Go Free or Die. wrote by Jeri Ferris. The main person in it was Harriet Tubman . Harriet wanted to be free. Because she was a slave. She has been sold but they did not keep her long . Because got hurt to much. She does something about her wanting to be free. My favorite part is were she told her friend she went only were the lord send her. She said this because she had saved over 19 people and never lost one.
Great book to share with your daughter  Jul 12, 2002
My 6 year-old has just become aware of Harriet Tubman and is fascinated with her story. Of all the books we found in the library this did the best job of really "telling" the story. It takes some liberty with describing her thoughts and feelings but it's authentic to Harriet Tubman's struggle and achievement. And, it's honest without being too scary for a youngster.
Gives you Everything on Harriet.  May 18, 2001
For school I was doing a report about Harriet Araminta Ross Tubman Davis. I looked up Jeri Ferris for a book because I had already read the one on Sourjourner Truth. When I read this book I got alot more info. than I thought I would. I did my report with no holes of info. missing. This book helped me so much, on my report I got an A+. It really really helped.
