Teaches you a lot

In reading Frederick's narrative it truly teaches you about the life inside slavery and how powerful the faith of a person can be to escape the evil of the world. He writes so well and I will always remember his story because it has inspired me.

Good Book

This is a great read, but it wouldn't hurt to have some of the imperfections corrected...sometimes it gets a bit confusing.

    Just Wondering

    Is this the original book published in 1845? I've been searching and searching for it but everyone seems to keep republishing it. I'm not even sure if the original copy still exists.

    terrible

    mr. douglass should have sat down and just obeyed his masters instead of trying to protest. i wonder why garrison even was against slavery. he was white! i wonder what woud have happened if he got caught the second time and why abraham lincoln agreed to ban slavery. why did he want to be free so bad? i think he should just obeyed his masters and he wouldn't have had a problem.
