Harriet Beecher Stowe grew up in a family in which her seven brothers were expected to be successful preachers and the four girls were never to speak in public. But slavery made Harriet so angry she couldn't keep quiet. Although she used a pen rather than her voice to convince people of the evils of slavery, she became more famous than any of her brothers. She firmly believed that words could make change, and by writing Uncle Tom's Cabin, Harriet Beecher Stowe hastened the Civil War and changed the course of America history.

I really wanted to know more about Harriet Beecher Stowe after reading "Uncle Tom's Cabin," but this book while centering around Harriet, also informed me about her whole family. I was thankful that there was a family tree chart in the book and referred to it often. I'm not sure how many children read biographies for fun but this book would be a nice one for when they have a school assignment to read a biography. ( )

Mildly interesting, and it does make me understand the Civil War era much more than I used to, but seeing as I don't really like Harriet Beecher Stowe, I didn't really enjoy Harriet Beecher Stoe And The Beecher Preachers.

But well written and very informative, so it's not bad. ( )

This is a sensible and energetic biography, less about Harriet Beecher Stowe as the author of Uncle Tom's Cabin and more about her as a member of her family and a woman of the nineteenth century. What I mean by this is that in reading it many times as a child, and now re-reading it as an adult, what stands out is not the explanations of the Fugitive Slave Act or of HBS's reaction to learning about slavery, but the descriptions of what made life different 150 years ago and of HBS's personality. I have remembered since childhood that HBS's family members suffered from depression (which they called the "hypos") and that HBS struggled greatly to find time for her writing while giving birth to and raising six children and worrying about her husband, money, and housekeeping. These sound like gloomy things for a child to read about, but Jean Fritz's matter-of-fact, often humorous writing strikes the right tone.

Another reviewer recommends this book for teaching about slavery or during Black History Month. I'm not sure I agree, especially not if this were a main focus in the curriculum. This is a fine read, and it does explain abolitionism and the events leading up to the Civil War pretty well, but these are not the focus of the book; HBS and her family are. For Black History Month, it's more important to read biographies of black people!
