This unique biography of Sojourner Truth tells the exciting story of her life using personal recollections, as well as letters and articles written by those who knew her.

"I am pleading for the mothers, Who gaze in wild despair, Upon the hated auction-block, And see their children there."

With these words Sojourner Truth sang about the pain that women slaves felt when their children were sold away from them. Sojourner Truth was born a slave in New York. Her son Peter was taken away from her and she went to extraordinary lengths to get him back. Through hard work and the help of her friends, Sojourner freed herself and her children from slavery. As a free woman, she traveled across the country speaking against slavery and in favor of women's rights.
