On June 5, 1851, Uncle Tom's Cabin began as a serial
in the abolishtionist weekly, The National Era.
It quickly became the world's second-best seller,
outranked only by the Bible. The importance of
Harriet Beecher Stowe's monumental work was as
evident at the time it was published as it is today.
A story of suffering and compassion, Uncle Tom's Cabin depicts slavery as honestly as it denounces it.
Paperback, recreation of 1852 edition, 358 pages.
