3.0 out of 5 stars Needs edit for a fact correction
By T. English on August 19, 2020
While I enjoyed the research the author did to highlight the influential Josiah Henson, the book suffers from the author not having read the entirety of Stowe’s “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.” Brock says “Tom murdered his overseer” on page 177. Stowe’s Uncle Tom does not commit murder in her novel! I was surprised when I read this in Brock’s book. He either never read the novel or he did such a quick read that he misunderstood the plot and Uncle Tom’s character. Either way, Mr. Brock needs to revise his book. I’m wondering if the book was published without the benefit of an editor who actually read “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” mentioned so frequently in this text.
