One of the orginal American Power brokers. He was involved in some of the most event changing issues of out time. Considering this fact I found his life to be humble and very simple.
I wanted to read the book because I saw the preview for the upcoming movie and was shocked to learn about this part of America's history. This story was so incredible that once I began listening it was hard to stop. It has been said many times but man's ability to be cruel to one another is amazing at times.
After I completed the story, I was sharing it with a few of my co-workers and was shocked to learn that my boss is the great-great-great grandson of Solomon Northrup. Just made it more incredible.
Sycamore Row made me feel like I was dropping back in with my old college buddy Jake and all of the characters around the square. As I was listening to the story being read by Michael Beck I could picture the southern town and all the quirks that exist there. I really did not want to it to end.
