About the Book

An Apple for Harriet Tubman

Written by Glennette Tilley Turner with illustrations by Susan Keeter

Like other enslaved African-American children, young Harriet Tubman had to work hard. In her master's orchard, she spent long hours picking the juicy apples she loved but was forbidden to eat. When she was grown, she made her escape to the North.
