    " Sojourner Truth was a extrodinary, a pioneer of her time, and while I appreciate the story, I did not care for the way the book itself was written. I think it took away from the essence of her story. I found the depiction of slavery in the north compared to what I know of slavery in the south interesting. "

    " Really interesting first-person account of slave life in the South. What an amazing woman. "

    " This is an important piece of historical literature by Sojourner Truth to primarily point out the evils of slavery. It is helpful to read a biography of her first and be familiar with her life. This little volume was penned for her by someone else, as she could not read nor write. This narrative was published for her to sell as a way to help support herself as she traveled about speaking against slavery. This only covers the beginning of her life, and she had many more adventures that followed this account. The woman writing this for her does insert some of her own interpretations, ideas, and examples, so this is not precisely in her own words. Worth being aware of. "
