Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?

Eliza Harris, a slave whose child is to be sold, escapes her beloved home on the Shelby plantation in Kentucky and heads North, eluding the hired slave catchers. Aided by the underground railroad, Quakers, and others opposed to the Fugitive Slave Act, Eliza, her son, and her husband George run toward Canada. As the Harrises flee to freedom, another slave, Uncle Tom, is sent "down the river" for sale. Too loyal to abuse his master's trust, too Christian to rebel, Tom wrenches himself from his family.

Buck Schirner is a master of voices! He did an excellent performance bringing the characters in this story to life.

I found myself in deep reflection on how I may have dealt with my circumstances had I lived during those tumultuous times. Would I have freed my slaves if I had inherited them from my father? If I was a slave would I have fought back physically against a cruel master or submitted my will to God's as Tom did?

No dought this book was controversial in its time, opened the minds of some and hardened that of others.

I'm very glad to have finally read this classic book!

I loved the way Garrett presents the critical habits and daily necessities of staying and running a business. I'd say this book is better to own than taking college courses on business. a must read for all small business owners!
