Life of a Slave on a Southern Plantation

by Currie, Stephen
Publisher: Lucent Books
Issue: Spring 2000
ISBN: 1560065397

The Way People Live, a book series for young people based on primary resources, tries "to flesh out the traditional, two-dimensional views of people in various . . . historical circum-stances . . . to enrich our understanding of ourselves." Two new additions, Life on the Under-ground Railroad and Life of a Slave, apply this approach to slavery, combining historical narrative with sidebar descriptions of such things as slave clothing and slave names.
