    I thought this book went into great detail in showing the history of African Americans. I think it should be used in a classroom setting to inform students about what African Americans had to go through after coming to America. The pictures in the book allows the reader to visualize what the times were actually like back then. Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book and I would recommend it to people of all ages.

    This is a great chapter book with wonderful illustrations. This book would be great to share with students around middle school age during black history month. This book is great in showing students events that took place in history that has led to equal rights.

    This is such a beautiful book. The illustrations are breath taking. The story is of a race of people ,worked to death to line the pockets of those who claimed ownership of another human, and continued the practice for as long as they could. It is very embracing, powerful and a must read for all Americans who want to know the truth about America and the toll it took on the black man to this day. I think adults will enjoy it just as much as children.

    I really enjoyed the illustrations in this book. It was one of the best illustrated books within the books that I reviewed. The author seemed to have really done his research before writing this amazing book. It would be a great lesson in the classroom to teach children about African Americans. It shows the inequality of the black man, and when explained and understood this is a very good book for children.

    Progress at a Price.

    *Beautiful color illustrations with vivid, eye-catching, and detailed oriented drawings, sure to capture the reader's attention. * This was a well researched book. *The time line is a great resource and the story of the African American in America is rich and worth reading about. This is a great book to begin learning about African Americans and would be a great addition to any social studies school library for classroom use, or for students to learn during silent sustained reading time.

    Wow! this book tells the true story of slavery and how it made southern families wealthy and destroyed the family unit of slaves.

    This is a beautiful book. the illustrations are beautiful. The story of a race of people ,worked to death to line the pockets of those who claimed ownership of another human, and continued the practice for as long as they could. Powerful, beautiful, and a must to read for all Americans who want to know the truth about America and the toll it took on the black man to this day.......the idea of the black man as inferior has lasted to this day because of the negative input of our culture for so many years is still being felt today. Is it a book for children. Yes, when a parent takes the time to explain the truth it is relevant.
