The Life and Times of Frederick Douglass was Douglass' third autobiography. In it, he was able to go into greater detail about his life as a slave and his escape from slavery, as he and his family were no longer in any danger from the reception of his work.
In this engrossing narrative, he recounts early years of abuse; his dramatic escape to the North and eventual freedom, abolitionist campaigns, and his crusade for full civil rights for former slaves. It is also the only of Douglass' autobiographies to discuss his life during and after the Civil War, including his encounters with American Presidents such as Lincoln, Grant, and Garfield.

Fredrick Douglass was an amazing man. This story is really a series of political essays about slavery with his life as the thread which holds them together. I would have liked to hear about his wife and family. He barely mentions them. The later part of the book seems to be Douglass defending himself regards John Brown, Freeman Bank and other issues. The narrator was excellent. Very easy to understand.

The point of view of Frederic Douglass, a slave, a hated man, is without a doubt one of the most detailed and hart fell narrative of a system that not only destroyed the life of countless families, but almost destroyed america. And gave way to the segregation system. More then anything else The life of Fredrick is a story of hard work, determination, and the courage to fight for that that is rightfully your, your own life, and liberty.
Richard Allen's voice is just fantastic.
