Has a story-telling rather than historical fact approach I alternately find fun and annoying. Decent background, though - and an excellent bibliography. I love when authors show their sources.

What a pack of trouble those missing spoons have caused! They must be found.
Who in this pleasant little town would steal old silver spoons from a display at the public library? Trying to find the answer, the Hill Gang fins themselves wearing disguises, trailing Suspect No. 1 and digging up the clues that lead to the surprising ending.

Born into slavery, young Harriet Tubman knew only hard work and hunger. Escape seemed impossible - certainly dangerous. Yet Harriet was strong-willed and courageous.
