In a colorful commentary on the life of Araminta Ross, Beverly Lowry writes, "Our heroes come to us in flashes that fade fast" (Harriet Tubman: Imagining a Life, 3). As the subtitle of the book captures Lowry's intention, she carries us along on a journey with this amazing and bold woman whom we have come to know as Harriet Tubman, one of the heroes of the Underground Railroad. Lowry's comment concerning the lifespan of our heroes reminds us that our influence is extremely powerful, yet too often short-lived.
