Auto-biograhical account of the end of slavery, by the courageous black leader who convinced Lincoln of the moral obligation to free the slaves. Without him, we might still be a slave-holding nation! A great American! A great book! Read full review
Outstanding piece of American Literature. A remarkable story by a admirable man. The author is the first literate person in his family, and as such, his writing style is very close to the oral tradition in which he was raised. So, when you read his story, you also feel like you are 'hearing' it. A fantastic glimpse at our past.
