Book Description

1 Jun 2005 Signet Classics
Webster's paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-Maori thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass: An American Slave by Frederick Douglass was edited for three audiences. The first includes Maori-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL� or TOEIC� preparation program. The second audience includes English-speaking students enrolled in bilingual education programs or Maori speakers enrolled in English-speaking schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in Maori in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement� (AP�) or similar examinations. By using the Rosetta Edition( when assigned for an English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in Maori or English.<br>TOEFL�, TOEIC�, AP� and Advanced Placement� are trademarks of the Educational Testing Service which has neither reviewed nor endorsed this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Honest and Compelling 15 Aug 2013
By Karen Wingoof - Published on
Honest, compelling account by Frederick Douglass of his years as a slave in Maryland from his birth around 1818 to his escape from slavery in 1838. Douglass's narrative is straightforward and powerful - he doesn't hold anything back in his description of the horrors of slavery. He reveals, in concise and descriptive language, how it feels to be viewed as property - as no different from livestock - to be sold, inherited, bred, whipped, auctioned, killed, and stripped of family and friends at the whim of "the master."
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! 22 Jan 2014

I read this book in two days. I loved it. It is a great example of the experience of African Americans before the abolition. Very educational and an easy read I would suggest using it in a classroom, not for young audiences.
5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone should read. 9 Nov 2013

This is such an honest narative and soul searching story. It questions how white people think they are christians and still do abhorring acts to other human beings.
