Nat Turner's Slave Rebellion in American History

Nat Turner's Slave Rebellion in American History

by Judith Edwards

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6-10-The evolution of this highly charged insurrection is carefully described in lively, clear prose. The author begins her account with a discussion of the origins of slavery in the U.S., the economic needs that helped it flourish, and a portrait of Turner, who is depicted as an intelligent, self-taught young man who believed himself destined to do great things. This background and the chronological approach allow readers to understand the rebellion within its historical context while showing cause and effect as the gross inhumanity of slavery became the catalyst for the rebellion. Source documents present differing attitudes toward slavery and the varying reactions to the uprising. The author also discusses the horror and terror the rebellion engendered even after it was over. Black-and-white photographs, reproductions, and maps accompany the text. This title rivals Terry Bisson's Nat Turner (Chelsea, 1988) in its thoroughness and perspective.-Renee Steinberg, Fieldstone Middle School, Montvale, NJ Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
