Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Part of the "Creative Minds Biography" series for young readers, this volume focuses on Frederick Douglass, the great African-American writer and orator who played a vital role in the our country's anti-slavery movement during the mid-nineteenth century. Born a slave, he grew up facing hunger, backbreaking work and cruel physical punishment. After escaping slavery when he was twenty years old, Douglass wrote profusely and traveled widely to share his story and spread his antislavery message. Readers will be interested to learn about the work he did after the institution of slavery was abolished, when Frederick Douglass played a vital role in the struggle to win equal rights for women. 2001, Carolrhoda Books, $21.27. Ages 8 to 11. Reviewer: Dianne Ochiltree
