Summary

When a Kentucky farmer is forced to sell two slaves to a plantation owner, it becomes a turning point in the lives of both slaves. For Eliza, it's one of escape - a harrowing flight north with her young son. For Uncle Tom, sent down the Mississippi River, it's a more certain fate, as he struggles to survive against the brutal exploitation of his traders.

As the single most popular novel of its era, Stowe's volatile work of protest fiction fueled the abolitionist cause in the 1850s. The book personalized the plight of slavery in a way that political speeches and newspapers could not. Stowe's humanistic approach ignited a national argument, one credited by historians as a key contributor to the outbreak of the Civil War.

Revised edition: Previously published as Uncle Tom's Cabin, this edition of Uncle Tom's Cabin (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

One of best ever

A finely crafted book combining history and storytelling. One of the best books I’ve ever read. Waited far too long to do so. Narrator amazing Alison Currie.

Excellent reading!

This is one of the best readings I've come across for an audiobook. There are so many characters, but the reader did a phenomenal job reading it. It’s a tough topic but still almost as pertinent today as it was back then.

Great book

This book had a powerful ending. I would have liked more about Simon LaGree's fate, but the book certainly is a classic that helped shape our nation. It also holds important lessons for today's society.

Tragically insightful

The lives that were lost, the hate and ignorant thoughts are so tragic it seems fiction. Very insightful book into our dark history. It’s one of those books that makes you see the world differently.

Such a sad and brutal part of American History

This book reminds me of the miniseries “Roots”. It’s heart wrenching to hear the brutality that the black race endured. The story is well written and the characters are all compelling. Every high school student should have to read it to be reminded of this history of our country so it can never be repeated.

Excellent classic!!!

It is a shame the schools took this book or of the circulum. So many life lessons to learn here.
