Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales: The Underground Abductor (An Abolitionist Tale about Harriet Tubman) by Nathan Hale

Into the Wild

Read Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales: The Underground Abductor (An Abolitionist Tale about Harriet Tubman) Online Free - Araminta Ross was born a slave in Delaware in the early 19th century. Slavery meant that her family could be ripped apart at any time, and that she could be put to work in dangerous places and for abusive people. But north of the Mason-Dixon line, slavery was illegal. If she could run away and make it north without being caught or killed, she’d be free. Facing enormous danger, Araminta made it, and once free, she changed her name to Harriet Tubman. Tubman spent the rest of her life helping slaves run away like she did, every time taking her life in her hands. Nathan Hale tells her incredible true-life story with the humor and sensitivity he’s shown in every one of the Hazardous Tales—perfect for reluctant readers and classroom discussions.

Best Harriet Tubman bio I've ever read. With every new Hazardous Tale, I notice something else that Nathan does really well. In the WWI book, it was graphic presentation of complicated information. In this one, it's the reactions of the narrators, and the way that those reactions validate the rea...

This is a fantastic story about Harriet Tubman. I thought I knew about her life and I really didn't. Why isn't there a movie about this amazing story. It's ripe for the Hollywood treatment - it has everything. This book keeps the serious subject light and gives you an overview of this woman. I did...

It's great when book series I love are doing well. Well enough that the series continues. That doesn't always happen, which makes me hesitate to put all my lovin' into one particular franchise. Happily, one of the current hits among history-based-graphic-novels-for-middle-grades is "Nathan Hale's...

With all their magic wonderlands and scary dystopias and Minecraft - uh - places, I sometimes despair that my kids will ever be interested in actual History. So I'm a little obsessed with Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales, a series of graphic books that are perfect for graduates of the Magic Treehous...

This is the fifth book in the well-researched graphic novel series by Nathan Hale. This time the focus is on the life of Harriet Tubman and her work as an abductor for the underground railroad. Hale does not soft pedal Tubman's biography or the ill treatment of the slaves; he tells the story in a...

In this volume, the British officer supervising Nathan Hale's execution demands a story where America doesn't look so good. Hale tells a tale from the days of slavery, specifically about Harriet Tubman. She was one of the most successful abductors on the Underground Railroad, a system that smuggl...
