A fascinating glimpse into the realities of slavery.
on February 19, 2013
Once upon a time, not so long ago, the only approved image of slavery in the American south was of benevolent masters and happy, slow-witted slaves. Nowadays, it's just the opposite, and anything other than a sadistic master and abused slaves is unacceptable. There are actually a couple of reviews of this poor little book on here that state as much. But neither image bears much resembalance to the reality. This book contains the words of an ex-slave, speaking of and for himself. It doesn't get much more real than that.
