Each chapter of the book was recalled by a child of a slave or a very old person who was a slave. After visiting the south this year, I found the book very enlightning. As much as slavery was bad and wrong, there were positives for some. It gives you a different viewpoint that not all slave owners were bad people. The book lets you witness that it wasn't so much the "masters" as it was other white men who used their strength and power to control people. The book gives a much greater appreciation of the other viewpoints of what it was like on the other side of this practice.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

When writing history it is so important not to disturb it's content when editing and Ms. Hurmence has done just that. For that I am most greatful. It allows the reader to injest the whole work without any bias. Thanks!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
