Item description for Harriet Beecher Stowe and the Beecher Preachers (Unforgettable Americans) by Jean Fritz...

Traces the life of Harriet Beecher Stowe, describes the impact of her most famous novel, and discusses her family background

Publishers Description
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. "Readable and engrossing." -- "The Horn Book"n"Fritz writes with verve and wit....Many kids will be stimulated to go on from here to find out more." -- "Booklist" (boxed review)

Reviews - What do customers think about Harriet Beecher Stowe and the Beecher Preachers (Unforgettable Americans)?

Jean Fritz Makes a Masterpiece of the Beecher Family in Harriet Beecher Stowe and the Beecher Preachers  May 8, 2006
When I hear the word `biography', the first thing I think is another boring book of facts. But Jean Fritz keeps her reader's interested, talking in a conversational tone, while weaving the tale of Harriet Beecher Stowe's life during the Civil War. You watch the influential writer and her family grow - facing much hardship and happiness. I would give this book five stars. Anyone who is interested in life during the civil war - well, Harriet's life at least, should definitely read this book. I would recommend it to kids 10-15.
I recommend it!  Jun 3, 2003
Jean Fritz does a wonderful job with this short biography for young adults. It's easy to read and gives lots of information on Harriet's life without boring you or causing your brain to feel overstuffed. There are pictures as well. I recommend this book for everyone, and it was a big help in my research.
just what i needed  Mar 8, 2002
This book was recomended to my by one of my study books after I finished reading Uncle Tom's Cabin. This book gives you insightful information about Harriet and her family, but does not make it dull. It is not to long of a book perfect for those readers who don't want to waste time on extra information. This book made me want to study further on about Harriet Beecher Stowe and learn more about her. I highly recomend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about someone and their part of making history.
