Uncle Tom is a high-minded, devoutly Christian black slave to a kind family, the Shelbys. Beset by financial difficulties, the Shelbys sell Tom to a slave trader. Young George Shelby promises to someday redeem him. The story relates Uncle Tom’s trials, suffering, and religious fortitude.

Uncle Tom’s Cabin was revolutionary in 1852 for its passionate indictment of slavery and for its presentation of Tom, “a man of humanity,” as the first black hero in American fiction. Upon meeting Harriet Beecher Stowe, Abraham Lincoln allegedly remarked, “So this is the little lady who started this new great war!” The novel became an overnight sensation and was hailed by Tolstoy as “one of the greatest productions of the human mind.” It remains a shocking, controversial, and powerful work, exposing the attitudes of white nineteenth-century society toward slavery and documenting in heart-rending detail the tragic breakup of black families.

Quotes & Awards

  • “One of the greatest productions of the human mind.”

    Leo Tolstoy

  • “Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin…demonstrates that one can write something that changes the world and makes it a better place. She reinforces the concept that the root of evil is the abuse of power, and it is important for all of us to remember that. It’s why people bully. It’s why they rape, torture, and murder.”

    Patricia Cornwell, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • “Belongs to the very short list of American books that helped create or consolidate a reform movement.”

    New York Times

  • “To expose oneself in maturity to Uncle Tom’s Cabin may…prove a startling experience.”

    Edmund Wilson, New York Times bestselling author

  • Uncle Tom’s Cabin is the most powerful and enduring work of art ever written about American slavery.”

    Alfred Kazin, American writer and award-winning literary critic

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Naomi | 2/14/2014

    " A classic for all to read, love, and cry over. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Elsie | 2/6/2014

    " An amazing book!!! My mom forced me to read it when I was very young and I didn't understand a thing at that time. Luckily I decided to give it a try again. Honestly, I like George and Eliza, Cassy more than Uncle Tom, although I am more interested in Uncle Tom's happenings. I admire people who can fight for their lives, their love. I am not Christian so I am not very tuned to Uncle Tom's love of the infinite God. At the end, his love of God couldn't change Legree anyway... "
