    1. This book was awesome. It is my kind of book mainly because I so enjoy learning of my history and the history of my people. I did learn alot and am very pleased that all of these folk were able to get out of the situation of slavery. We know that many were not as fortunate and died living and knowing the slave life only. So many of the stories impacted me but I guess the one I remember most was the one of the slave girl where here master continue to rape and exploit her. She could do nothing of [...]

    2. This book was a great book to for all African American origins to learn a bit more about the struggle for them and hard it was. The is pretty dark and cruel but it taught of how great great great great grandparents had to live. The book will make you feel down and know how mean the white men where to the blacks. Spoiler alert Some of the later stories showed how the African made the best of what they had and gained and help each other out. I really do feel for the live that where lost just for t [...]

    3. A collection of true slave narratives. Not a novel but individual personal vignettes of slave life. Some brutal, some poignant. ALL very sad.

    4. Growing Up In SlaveryStories of young slaves as told by themselves, edited by: Yuyal Taylor So we’ve always had a good idea of what slavery was like but we don’t truly understand until they are told to us by slaves themselves and this is what this book does. This book shares all the stories of how slaves were truly treated, their lifestyle, how cruel and inhumane people were, it truly touched my heart and made me wonder how a person could treat someone so cruelly. I really liked the book bec [...]

    5. I purchased this for my 7th grade US History class. This collection of primary source materials is an indispensible resource for teaching about slavery. Students learn about other young people (like themselves) who endured great hardship as a domestic or field slaves. Both genders are represented. IF you are not interested in reading the longer story, Frederick Douglass' story is told through 36 pages of exerpts.

    6. Some great but tragic stories about the horrors on slavery. I am using the stories for my social studies classes. They are just as moved and horrified as any caring person would be at the events we were so embarressingly a part of. These are great primary sources for students too.

    7. The introduction to this book was rather slow, but the true stories of slavery told by the slaves themselves was interesting, and enlightening. How cruel slavery was, and how courageous the human spirit was under such horrific conditions. Worth reading.

    8. I am somewhat speechless with this book. Hearing the voices of those who lived through the ordeal of their bondage, made you actually feel it as you read this book. It bring to life the true struggle, in which people suffered.

    9. Excellent, excellent, excellent!! It showcases the horrors of slavery, but focuses on the triumphs of individuals and on overcoming adversity. The book is comprised of stories (narratives) as written by the slaves themselves. READ THIS BOOK! This book is edited by Yuval Taylor.

    10. I really liked this book because it has REAL experiences of slaves. There are several slaves who wrote stories. Their experiences are each so different and so similar at the same time. I recomend this book for anyone! It is touching and i learned alot by reading it.

    11. - This book was brutal.- It gives you images of how slavery was.-The graphic scenes were shown in both pictures and words.-It was interesting

    12. Excellent book and love every minute of reading it. Every black person should read this book, make you be a bit thankful of the opportunity we have now.

    13. Very good book also sad there where moments in this book that made me mad enough to cry but I really learned alot.
