Published in 1852, Uncle Tom’s Cabin brought the abolitionists’ message to the public conscience. No woman before or since has so moved America to take action against an injustice. 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 places him in the ranks of those who mean well by their slaves but never take action. Tom is sent farther downriver to Simon Legree’s plantation and to the whips of Legree’s overseers.

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.”

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... "
