The Slaves Have Names: Ancestors of My Home
This author has done her research on a difficult topic. She approaches this with dignity and respect. Her level of professionalism is incredible. Her story telling is impressive considering the limitations of her subject. She doesn't give us easy answers to who these people were and why they did what they did. When there are a lack of answers, she imagines various scenarios that could fit the facts. This lets us see how many ways that history can be read. This is fascinating for the research and for the story telling. It is a must for anyone interested in pre-Civil War US history.
