This review is from: Up from Slavery (Dover Thrift Editions) (Paperback)
I found this book inspirational.
Firstly, it gives a look at what it was like to be a child around the time of the Civil War, when slavery was about to be abolishes. It gives an incite I had never thought about which is how slaves really felt about their masters – it was quite surprising.
I found the book well-written and eloquent.
I found Washington to be a very likable, noble, and innovative character. I really enjoyed reading about all he had done and achieved around this time.
I love books which take you on a journey while teaching you something, so books based on reality of autobiographies or biographies.
This book didn’t disappoint in that regard; it taught me a lot about how things were back then whilst also inspiring me with Washington’s antics of making the world a better place.
I’ve come to admire this man greatly, and will read some of his other works now!
The book is short and I read it in about two days. It was a page Turner and something you can read through easily.
