Harriet Tubman was a slave during the 1800s.  Like many other slaves, Harriet escaped to freedom in the north.  But she had help along the way from strangers who hid her and showed her where to go to find her freedom.  All through her ordeal, Harriet never lost her faith in God to show her the way.  After she found her freedom, she devoted herself to helping others escape to freedom.  This is her story of faith in God and faith in man.
