Chasing Freedom recounts the life stories of Harriet Tubman and Susan B. Anthony through a fictional conversation between the two women. Susan B. Anthony is hosting a women's rights meeting, with Harriet Tubman as the keynote speaker. Harriet comes early to catch up with her old friend, and the two recount stories of years gone by before the meeting starts. The author creates an engaging atmosphere for late elementary school-aged children to imagine the lives, struggles, and triumphs of these champions of equal rights.
