I don't know what three stars even means, or why I assigned this great book such a piddly rating...but it's star-less. Unstarrable. I read this 20 years ago and still think about it often. Some of the images Douglass paints are still burned into my mind's eye, especially the one of a pen fitting into the cracks in his soles.

When studying slavery in American History, students are often exposed to the arguments of Abolitionists and the defense of the peculiar institution by Southerners. The narrative by Frederick Douglass gives a voice to the slaves. The book is 124 pages long and very quick to read. You can also download this book from the internet, for free, at Project Gutenberg. The difference is that this version has a ten-page introduction by Peter Gomes.
