About the Author

Frederick Douglass (1818–1895) was an American social reformer, orator, writer and statesman. After escaping from slavery, he became a leader of the abolitionist movement, gaining note for his dazzling oratory and incisive antislavery writing. He stood as a living counter-example to slaveholders' arguments that slaves did not have the intellectual capacity to function as independent American citizens. Many Northerners also found it hard to believe that such a great orator had been a slave. Douglass wrote several autobiographies, eloquently describing his life as a slave, and his struggles to be free. His first autobiography, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave, was published in 1845 and was his best-known work, influential in gaining support for abolition. He wrote two more autobiographies, with his last, Life and Times of Frederick Douglass, published in 1881 and covering events through and after the Civil War. After the Civil War, Douglass remained active in the United States' struggle to reach its potential as a "land of the free". Douglass actively supported women's suffrage. Following the war, he worked on behalf of equal rights for freedmen, and held multiple public offices. Douglass was a firm believer in the equality of all people, whether black, female, Native American, or recent immigrant. He was fond of saying, "I would unite with anybody to do right and with nobody to do wrong." --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I'm supposed to be doing research for my homework. I had chosen Frederick Douglass as one of my subjects. Since I purchased this eBook I decided to take a glance at it to see if I could find some advantage in it for my project. That was an hour ago! I can't stop reading this article of his escape from slavery. I had not expected it to be such a good read. He writes with such passion, distinction, forethought and care. This could rival any novel on the market today for excitement and suspense. It's just a wonderful story and so beautifully written. As soon as I get this paper completed I'm coming back to finish the story. I can't wait to see what happens next. . . .

A good writer. Straightforward without the verbosity of so many 19th century writers. One sentence in particular stood out: "The thing worse than rebellion is the thing that causes rebellion." He was a rebel with a cause, and he overcame it with dignity. Firsthand history. Highly recommended.

I had never read any of Mr Douglass' works and when I saw it offered as one of the free books, I downloaded it to my Kindle.

Thank you, Amazon, for making this available to me. It is as if Mr Douglass were writing to the American Congress today in 2013!

Most young people probably have never heard of Frederick Douglas, born a slave, he freed himself through the Underground Railroad. He didn't live on hate, he lived by hard work and freedom to be all he could be. Absolutely a must read!

There are two articles included in this book, "My Escape from Slavery," November 1881, and Reconstruction, 1866.
The first article was a inspiring story about his selfishness: escaping from his master, self-educating himself, his reaction to earning money, and his determination to support himself.
"Reconstruction" is a presentation of of his fears and hopes about getting equal rights for everyone, and in part, sounds like a speech.
If you really want to explore the thoughts of a man who was considered the greatest abolitionist, you will need to read more than these two brief articles.
