Amos Fortune Free Man by Elizabeth Yates
Reviewed by Lydia
Amos Fortune Free Man is a very informational book. It is about a slave who becomes free and starts making his own family. He realizes that if you never lose your dignity then you can never lose yourself. I liked this book because it really shows you what life was really like back then. The best thing about this book is that while being entertained you are also being informed on what slavery was really like.
The worst part about it is that reading this you start feeling for the people who had to live in that time. I would most likely recommend this book to people who are ages 7+ and to people who are really interested in history. Amos Fortune is a very good book so please go read it.Posted by at February 19, 2010 01:32 PM
