    A great book with eerie parallels to what still happens today. Very well written and thought out. Especially love the poem at the end.

    Great book! Gives the reader an inside look of the life of a slave in the 19th century. This books is also an amazing piece of literature and full of rich rhetoric.

    I read this book in a couple of days and couldn't put it down. I wonder what Mr. Douglas would thing about how things are now thanks to his "humble" efforts.
