I was inspired to read this after watching the excellent PBS series "The Abolitionists" and I was awakened to the fact that Garrison has not received nearly enough credit for being one of the very greatest Americans. His unrelenting, thankless and dangerous quest to end slavery in American was unrivaled. He was also an advocate for non-violent change and, in that regard, was a pioneer and a model for Ghandi and King. This book details his long struggle and his great remarkable life.
