Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Born in Connecticut in 1811, Harriet Beecher Stowe was an abolitionist, author, and playwright. Slavery was a major industry in the American South, and Stowe worked with the Underground Railroad to help escaped slaves head north towards freedom. The publication of her book, Uncle Toms Cabin, a scathing anti-slavery novel, fanned the flames that started the Civil War. The books emotional portrayal of the impact of slavery captured the nations attention. A best-seller in its time, Uncle Toms Cabin sealed Harriet Beecher Stowes reputations as one of the most influential anti-slavery voices in US history.

Synopsis:

Born a slave in Maryland, Harriet Tubman knew first-hand what it meant to be someone's property; she was whipped by owners and almost killed by an overseer. It was from other field hands that she first heard about the Underground Railroad which she travelled by herself north to Philadelphia. Throughout her long life (she died at the age of ninety-two) and long after the Civil War brought an end to slavery, this amazing woman was proof of what just one person can do.
