Gail Nelson is an unobtrusive narrator who lets Harriet Tubman's deeds and personality speak for themselves. And speak they do! It is remarkable that Adler includes so much information in such a slim work. From Maryland plantation to Underground Railroad conductor to Civil War nurse to community leader in Auburn, New York, Tubman had a life of remarkable deeds and personal fortitude. Nelson's pacing is such that each event is discrete; her clear, forceful words underscore the import of what is occurring. It is unmistakable to Nelson and to the listener that Harriet Tubman was a person who made a difference in her world. A.R. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
