Publisher's Summary

Nate Shaw's father was born into slavery. Nate was born into a bondage that was only a little gentler. At the age of nine, he was picking cotton and plowing behind a mule. At the age of forty-seven, he faced down a crowd of white deputies who had come to confiscate a neighbor's livestock. His defiance cost him twelve years in prison.This triumphant autobiography, All God's Dangers, assembled from the eighty-four-year-old Shaw's oral reminiscences, is the plainspoken story of an "over average" man who witnessed momentous changes in the lives of Southern people, black and white, and whose unassuming courage helped bring those changes about.

    Story
    "Very educational and enjoyable."

    It took a little while to get used to the deep southern accent used in the narration but the book was well worth the effort.
