    Description

    Neither before nor after the publication of Uncle Tom's Cabin has a woman ever so moved America to take action against injustice as Harriet Beecher Stowe.

    Published in 1852, Uncle Tom's Cabin brought the abolitionists' message to the public conscience. Indeed, Abraham Lincoln greeted Stowe in 1863 as "the little lady who made this big war."

    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. Befriending a white child, Evangeline St. Clare, Tom is purchased by her father and taken to their home in New Orleans. Although Evangeline's father finally resolves to free his slaves, his sudden death alters their fates, sending Tom farther downriver to Simon Legree's plantation, and the whips of Legree's overseers.

    Pure genius

    Harriet Beecher Stowe pulled the rug out from under the slave culture and held a mirror up to the oppressors faces, what a brave act in her time. The narration by Buck Schirner took you inside the novel and made you feel as though you were there, absolutely astonishing. The best book I have listed to so far and I recommend it highly!

    Inspiring

    Buck Schirner was an expert in taking on the voice and language of the characters. He made the book come alive for me. This book is thought provoking as one considers hypocrisy and self-centered living as opposed to Tom's humility and self-sacrifice for his fellow slaves. It inspires me to do something and be a voice for the voiceless as Tom and George did.

    Thoroughly enjoyed a piece of American heritage through these brilliant prose.

    I enjoyed the style and cadence of the novel as much as the performance of Mr. Schirner. His rendering of the characters breathed life into the words on the page.

    Uncle Tom: A First Hearing

    I have long heard the pejorative term "Uncle Tom", referring to a Black man who goes along to get along. I did not perceive that chapter in this book.

    True classic with amazing narration.

    Stowe's classic story is a must read/listen for everyone and Schiner's narration is incredible. He masterfully voices probably more than 30 characters with adroit nuance allowing the listener to become even more connected than what just the written words can provide.

    A classic, no doubt.

    Buck Shirner, is it, made the situations characters were in feel real with his skill at different accents. An excellent book, despite it's ending. No bonus thing like in another version of his narration for this book.
