    The narrow escape of Eliza, the brutality of Simon Legree, the sweetness of little Eva and the kindness and faith of Uncle Tom are all part of this inspiring novel. This audiobook contributed significantly to the arousal of anti-slavery sentiment before the Civil War and helped to pave the way for civility and equal rights. Please be advised that this audiobook contains racial epithets of the period that may be offensive to some of today's listeners.

    Uncle Tom's Cabin is centered on the character of Uncle Tom, a long-suffering black slave around whom the stories of other characters - both fellow slaves and slave owners - revolve. This emotional novel portrays the reality of slavery while also stressing that Christian love can defeat something as damaging as enslavement of fellow human beings. Uncle Tom's Cabin was the best-selling book in the 19th century, and second best-selling following the Bible.

    This intensely dramatic and moving novel has remained a best-selling classic since it was first published in 1852. The slaves Eliza and George make a desperate bid to escape to Canada, while Uncle Tom is sold to two successive and very different owners. Abraham Lincoln himself acknowledged the role played by this seminal text in the Civil War, the aim of which was (in part) to emancipate the slaves of the southern states.

    "So this is the little lady that made the big war." The authenticity of Lincoln's words have been questioned, but there is no question that the work fueled the passion and prejudices of countless numbers. It is a work of overwhelming power and persuasions which has outlived even the most severe critics. Notwithstanding its contribution to the abolitionist movement, the book offers a balanced treatment; there is admiration for the best of Southern gentility and the villain is a Vermonter.

    Master wit Mark Twain selected these 27 stories himself by 15 of his favorite 19th-century authors. The order follows that which Twain placed them in in the original anthology, published in 1888. He indulged his comic fancy rather than making a textbook in which all themes or authors are placed together, saying that "This way you will have to peruse the whole thing before discovering that one of your favorites is not included." Among others, you'll find: Artemus Ward, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Francis Lee Pratt, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Frederick W. Cozzens, and Twain himself.

    This is one of several classic short stories written by acclaimed author Harriet Beecher Stowe. Almost fable-like, this story follows a chicken couple who became parents to a brood of ducks. The trouble arrives when no one initially realizes the baby fowl are not actually chickens. Even the coop doctor passes along an outrageous remedy that adds humor to this delightful tale.

    President Abraham Lincoln once told author Harriet Beecher Stowe, "So you're the little woman who wrote the book that made this great war!" The President was referring to Uncle Tom's Cabin that cast a spotlight on the issue of slavery. This story by Stowe casts a similar light that may be more understandable by a younger audience who may try to discover why crickets were so unacceptable. Narrated by Alyssa Hascall.
