M. Douglass has been able to transport us to his time thru his narrative. The way this book is writing keeps you asking for more. The only negative is the absence of details on how he manage to get free, which is pretty understandable. As he put it himself he did not want to jeopardize any other slaves' tentative to free themselves. Presently I am reading a few 19th century books, unlike other travel or explorers narratives this is not a boring description of facts, landscape or political scenes but a vibrant personal experience...

This book deserves 10 stars, impeccable English, depth of thought, pathos of a people subjugated, bent but not broken-What a book. Close your eyes and buy it and buy extra copies.

Memoir response paper. A narrative of the life of Frederick Douglass Austin Smith. I needed to do this for school.
This book provides an educational narrative about slavery in the 1800’s and it’s a terribly sad chronicle of Harriet Jacobs' life.Read more
Deeply moving struggle of a human being presented with awe-inspiring writting.
Very interesting book. Tells how one negro girl left the cruelity of slavery of white masters
