Living as a slave with her family on an old Maryland plantation in 1853, twelve-year-old Rosebud Jackson had been helping her mother with the cooking for the Big House as long as she could remember. Rosebud's world seemed like an endless pile of pots and pans to wash, food to prepare, and bread to bake. Her father worked long days in the fields while her fifteen-year-old brother Isaac was the stable boy. But when a series of tragedies strikes, Rosebud is left alone and very afraid. Her only hope is that the words of her father will come true: "Just listen for the whippoorwill." When the harvest season is over, this sound will be her signal to follow in a desperate attempt to escape her cruel slavery. On the darkest of nights, Rosebud will meet the mysterious person the slaves called "Moses," who will lead her and other slaves on a harrowing journey toward the North on the Underground Railroad. Harriet Tubman, known as "Moses," was also an escaped slave and became notorious for leading bands of runaways on their dangerous passage to Canada.
Living as a slave on a plantation in Maryland in 1852, Rosalie Jackson finds herself suddenly alone after the death of her mother, her father's escape North, and the selling of her brother to another slave owner. Then, one night, as he had promised, her father returns to lead Rosalie on a harrowing journey that untimately results in their freedom.
Called the black ''Moses'' of the Civil War, Harriet Tubman is one of the enduring figures of African-American history. This Trailblazer Book looks at the important role she held.
