this book is one that you actually need to take time out for. it is not meant for the speed demons. it is a true eye opener of what our ancestors had to go through. i got mad reading every story. how can one human being treat another the way these slave owners treated their slaves? they would actually think of means of torture. God has brought us a mighty long way.

This book is an eye opener. We think walking to class or doing anything extra is so unncessary. But when you read this book and read all the surreal things that they had to go through just to survive, it makes me take notice of the things that I do and what I should be doing to make this world a better place.

I read this book while in Korea, and when my coworkers(black/African American) would see it on my desk they would ask "why are you reading that". It was disturbing to me that many african american/black people try to act like slavery never happened, and even worse that they know so little about it. I cant for the life of me understand why our people choose to live in darkness. I tried to pass this book around my camp but it didnt make it so far. Truly sad! Great read though.

This is a must read! I think this is one of the best slave narratives I've ever read and it taught me alot. I felt as if I went through these journeys with them and I may have thought I knew alot about slavery I learned so much more. Overall a wonderful informative book.
