Weatherford's poetic narrative and Kadir Nelson's magnificent paintings bear witness to an ecstatic event -- the Spirit of God communing with the flesh-and-blood of true humanity. "in this gorgeous, poetic picture book, Weatherford depicts Harriet Tubman's initial escape from slavery and her mission to lead others to freedom as divinely inspired, and achieved by steadfast faith and prayer. The author frames the text as an ongoing dialogue between Tubman and God, inserting narration to move the action along. on the eve of her being sold and torn from her family, Tubman prays in her despair. in response, God speaks in a whip-poor-will's song."-Publishers Weekly
