Overview

Harriet Beecher Stowe (June 14, 1811 – July 1, 1896) needs no introduction to most as the famous American abolitionist and author of Uncle Tom's Cabin. A daughter of the famous Beecher family and sister to the "Beecher Preachers', here is her life story in her own words

From the introduction:
"It seems but fitting, that I should preface this story of my life, with a few words of introduction.

The desire to leave behind me some reflection of my life, has been cherished by me, for many years past; but failing strength and increasing infirmities have prevented its accomplishment.

At my suggestion and with what assistance I have been able to render my son Revd. Charles Edward Stow, has compiled from my letters and journals, this biography. It is this true story of my own words, and has therefore all the force of an autobiography.

It is perhaps much more accurate as to detail & impression than is possible with any autobiography, written later in life".
