Published in 1852, Uncle Tom's Cabin brought the abolitionists' message to the public conscience, no woman before or since has so moved America to take action against an injustice. Indeed, Abraham Lincoln greeted Stowe in 1863 as "the little lady who made this big war."

It’s easy to understand how this book helped propel the slavery issue forward and appalled those in the northern states. The book shows the uncertainties of slave life and the horrible conditions under which many lived. A kind master who promises freedom at his death cannot enforce this decree if he did not sign papers, and more than one slave in the novel learns this truth.
Tom keeps his faith in a better life to come, even as he is sold to a new master and then to the savagely cruel Simon Legree. Harriet Beecher Stowe shows the hypocrisy of owners who can cite Scripture to support their views. Some had the attitude that blacks were lesser individuals who did not mourn being separated from their families and could be set up with another spouse.
This audio version has tracks which are entirely too short, most of less than a minute, resulting in 90-plus tracks on each CD. This is bothersome if you are switching from one player to another.
