Harriet Tubman aka “Moses” (History’s Most Wanted)

| May 6, 2017


Just who is Harriett Tubman? Sambo had often wondered the same thing. He had heard of the Harriet Tubman road to freedom but what he was about to encounter was a journey he could have never imagined in his wildest dreams.

Samuel Walter Jenks (Sambo) knew the meaning of a hard day’s work. He was all too familiar with a good lickin’ readily dished out to any who dared not meet the daily quota of back-breaking labor. Being a young slave on a tobacco plantation had acquainted him with many things a boy his age should never know about.

Under the hands of his cruel master, Mr. Capps, Sambo suffered severe beatings. But it was when his father (Big Sam) was sold off to another farm for defending him that inflicted the worst pain of all. The scars on his heart dug down to his very soul.

Amidst the agony and despair, Sambo and the rest of the slaves held to a glimmer of hope. It was farfetched…but it was something that got them through the long days and endless nights. It was the hope of Moses.

One day it happened. Moses arrived. Anything but what little Sambo and the others expected him to be like, he was a she. Small in stature and perhaps a little too daring, the woman wasted no time in placing her demands. It was all or nothing. The Harriett Tubman freedom train was leaving. But would Sambo make it down the track to freedom? An unlikely encounter left him to make a decision no young boy should ever have to make.

Read on to find out how this Harriet Tubman book ends and be forewarned…the twists and turns will leave you on the edge of your seat.
