Booming with courage, strength and an indomitable spirit, this book tells the story of how Sojourner Truth found her voice and spoke out against slavery and the oppression of women throughout her lifetime. She began as the ninth child in a family of slaves and grew quickly to be six feet tall. Her power and her strength were in her size and in her soul. What Sojourner wanted most in the world was her freedom. She escaped slavery and all of its atrocities by running away and being aided by a Quaker family who purchased her from her owner to set her free. To Sojourner her "freedom meant helping others." Her "freedom meant she would 'travel up and down the land' to share her ideas." She dedicated her life to bringing truth to others. This book becomes the amazingly powerful voice of Sojourner Truth and offers each reader the chance to join her and to continue her journey toward Truth.
