    Very powerful! This was an excellent literary piece of work. It appeared to accurately depict the life of a slave in the South describing the atrocities that beheld him.

    Explicit details of the cruel, degrading life as a slave, told by a freeman sold into slavery. Truly an eye opener.

    A very vivid account of slavery in America and the injustice that prevailed during the 1800s until emancipation.
