    more from this reviewer

    This book should be a mandatory read in high school english classes throughout the US.

    It was realized after reading this book by Harriet Jacobs, that our United States has a past that is ugly to say the least. It is hard to phantom what we did to humans only because of the color of their skin. I highly recommend this book to be read by any and all to clearly come to an understanding of what we, the United States, has done in the past. Through knowledge, we can hopefully ensure that this never happens in our future. Knowledge is the power to make change!

    Great read!

    I read this book in one day! I was amazed at how well written it was; and how the insight into such a troubled time in this country was so easily conveyed. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone seeking further appraisals into African American history.

    Wonderful!

    This is a remarable life story. Ms. Jacobs takes us to a place we cannot imagine existed, however, very real. Thank God for the accounts of our history and the hope we still seek.

    Great Book but Disturbing Book

    This is a very enlightening book that pulls at the very soul when you read the things that were done to slaves by white Americans. Thank God, slavery was abolished. Any American who has the heart to treat anyone the way slaves were treated is very un-American. I enjoyed reading this book written by a slave, but it made me cringe at the things this girl went through. No living human being should have ever been treated like an animal, and some of these people were treated worse than animals. It is a very upsetting book.
