Love my Kindle and my audiobooks.
Yes. Wonderful introduction to a courageous person.
Fred Douglass. Because of his bravery.
I was moved by his courage to return to the US even at the risk of being arrested again.
This book is written for a child or a youth and it definately reads that way. The story was choppy and did not flow and it was "dumbed down". I never finished it, and I love the biography of Frederick Douglas. It was just written for the education level of about a 5th grader.
I was hoping for a book slightly more focused on the life and accomplishments of a man I truly admire, as opposed to an expose on slavery. I doubt that Mr. Douglass ever considered himself a slave nor could he have risen like a Lotus from the mud that were the times he was born into had he allowed his "owners" to convince him that he was. Very disappointing.
