Publisher's Summary

The Slaves, is nothing but Frederick Douglass's groundbreaking autobiography, his first book, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave, written by Himself. We have renamed the title here as The Slaves to keep the title short as well as to establish that Frederick Douglass is no longer a name of a particular slave born in the 19th-century America, but a name that represents slaves of the entire world and of all time.

Even though, we do not wish anyone to be born into slavery anymore like Frederick was, we have taken him as a symbol of all the slaves as a wish that all who are still in slavery may have the spirit of Frederick Douglass and fight their ways to the freedom and work to free other slaves to make the slavery history.

    "Excellent"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Slaves to be better than the print version?

    I don't know if it is better than the print version because I do not own the print version. After listening to the audio, however, I do plan to purchase the print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That he ultimately escaped from slavery as well as how he protected the names of those who assisted in his escape.

    "A quality production of an important book"

    If you are interested in what Frederick Douglass had to say about slavery, in his own words, this is a must listen narrative.

    Steve Ogden has done a top-notch job with the narration, and the words are powerful and impactful. A timely listen in a troubled world.
