    Uncle Tom is a high-minded, devoutly Christian black slave to a kind family, the Shelbys. But beset by financial difficulties, the Shelbys sell Tom to a slave trader. Young George Shelby promises to someday redeem him. The story relates Uncle Tom's trials, suffering, and religious fortitude.

    Sam Motes says: "The beginning of the end of slavery"
    "A Forgotton Classic that shoud be read"
    Overall

    Uncle Tom's Cabin is a very important part of the American literary Experience. It was written shortly before the Civil War, and had an influence on the collective conscience which was an important part of the war. The story is powerfully written and it is easy to see why and how it influenced people when it first came out. In some ways it is overly religious and treats the African Americans of the story in an overly simplistic way, but nevertheless is a powerful indictment of the evils of slavery.

    I recommend it highly. It should be read by everyone of college age or beyond. The only reason it shouldn't be read by high school students is that it is so long.
