im a 14 year old girl and this was one option for a summer reading assignment i have to do for high school. history being one of my favorite subjects, i chose this book. in knowng the US's history before the civil war it gives a more indepth and disturbing look at slavery in the south. harriet beecher stowe took a chance to try to show people a new look at the brutality and cruelty behind slavery. after reading this book, i was courious is to what inspired her to write this book. it turns out she witnessed a slave named tom being beaten to death nad ran home to write about it. its a great book and i believe its a must read.
*keep in mind it was written before the civil war so its language is sometimes difficult to understand*
Thanks to public domain copyrights for being able to download this free for my Kindle. I'm so glad that I finally got the chance to read this book. It was totally worth it, and a fantastic read! The descriptions of life and slavery during this era were heartbreaking; it's no wonder this book helped to really open people's eyes in the 19th century to the horrors of slavery.
I highly reccommend this book!!!
Reading this book opened my eyes and heart. After reading Booker T Washintons book Up from Slavery and now this. I want to read more on this part of Americas Tragic historical weaknesses
This is the clean, clear version of UncleToms Cabin that was meant to be within the literature world instead of the silly, stupid, bastardized version of it that is widely known today.
