    No slave narrative is easy to read due to the fact the reader is transported to a particularly vile part of American history. However, I feel like every human being (especially those interested in politics and human relations) should read at least two.
    I’m trying to become more knowledgeable about the struggles of Blacks during this time period because of personal interest and a project I’ve been working on for a while.

    I appreciated hearing the voices of the individuals that wrote their stories, which are collected here. The various authors wrote with varying skill, but all were genuine and interesting. I found it powerful to hear about the sad and horrific facts of a slave’s life related in a straightforward manner. It was interesting to see how the individuals here managed to continue living their lives as best as possible under very difficult circu

    These 'slave narratives' are different in tone and context from most other narratives I've read.
    Some of this is because these narratives weren't collected during the Federal Writer's Project. They were mostly written before 1909. They primarily showcase enslaved women assigned to the house. This is also not set in the deep south.
    Extremely religious telling. I almost feel like the stories were edited to enforce religious lessons.

    Five Self authored narratives from ladies who endured and survived enslavement. All stories were fascinating, some were better written than others, however the word narrative is paramount. These are self written stories, that are honest and sincere. Thought provoking, inspiring and tragic that this was even the reality for some humans.

    Brutal primary source narratives.

    True life accounts of a horrible time in history. What moves me, is the exceptional strength people had during the those times.

    One of the two Dover anthologies of slave narratives written between 1863 and 1909, that is much earlier than the bulk of slave narratives which were collected from very old ex-slaves during the Depression by the Federal Writers Project; but their earlier date is balanced by the fact that they are a much less representative sample and were written and published for religious edification more than history.

    Women's Slave Narratives consists of five short books origina

    A primary source will not be denied. Yet, I expected more detail about their lives as slaves. I would think anyone who had been held in bondage would be much more angry & indignant, but maybe that was considered unladylike or unchristian among those who were interviewed. It is an extremely small book. There are not nearly 160 pp. of text; I think much of what is advertised is given over to citations. And I like well-cited work, but expected a more representative sampling (at least

    So far, these narratives are heart warming and to the core. A lot of lessons can be learned from the stories.

    Sometimes I found the narrative to be rambling and not cohesive. Hard to follow.
