Customer Review

on 2 January 2014
There is a letter in this book called "To My Master". It was written by Jourdon Anderson, a man who had escaped a 32-year life of slavery, and it is addressed to his former master, Patrick Henry Anderson, who had asked him to return to help his ailing business. Reading this letter, which takes up a mere 2 pages, you will probably understand more about slavery than you might reading a 1000-page academic tome on the subject, and the emotions it evokes range from sadness to hope to anger, and even amusement (however bittersweet).

And this is just one of 125 letters.

Life is made of stories, and each letter in this book tells a story. Therefore, this book is life :)
