    The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman

    The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman was a reviting story of the life of a young girl at the end of slavery. Freedom come when she was still a young child. This story tells the struggles and triumphs of a young child that becomes a women as she fights for her right for freedom in life. Gaines tells this story in a way that is different from all his other novels but he captures the essence of Miss Jane Pittman's life story. This was a well written easy to read novel.

    'The autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman'

    'The autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman' was a good book by Ernest J Gaines. I likes how he gave people a descriptive detail of the story. He made the readers feel like they were also listening to Miss Jane as she told the story. The story help you understand the struggles Jane had went though as a child and as she had gotten older. It helps me appreciate the things those before me went through. When they did have freedom that still were not treated equally as the whites. I would recommend this book.
