When a Kentucky farmer is forced to sell two slaves to a plantation owner, it becomes a turning point in the lives of both slaves. For Eliza, it’s one of escape—a harrowing flight north with her young son. For Uncle Tom, sent down the Mississippi River, it’s a more certain fate, as he struggles to survive against the brutal exploitation of his traders.

As the single most popular novel of its era, Stowe’s volatile work of protest fiction fueled the abolitionist cause in the 1850s. The book personalized the plight of slavery in a way that political speeches and newspapers could not. Stowe’s humanistic approach ignited a national argument, one credited by historians as a key contributor to the outbreak of the Civil War.

Revised edition: Previously published as Uncle Tom's Cabin, this edition of Uncle Tom's Cabin (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

About the Author:

Harriet Elisabeth Beecher Stowe (1811–1896) was an American author, suffragist, and abolitionist whose best-known work, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, incited fury in the South while it galvanized the antislavery movement in the North.

Born in Litchfield, Connecticut, Harriet was one of ten siblings who were each devoted to social change whether through ministry, education, or activism in the burgeoning suffrage movement. For Harriet it would be through writing. In her lifetime she wrote thirty books including travel memoirs, articles, and novels, all reflecting her outspoken views on the controversial societal issues of the day. In 1832, Harriet met Calvin Ellis Stowe, a professor and active supporter of the Underground Railroad whose home was a harbor for fugitive slaves. From this experience, Harriet wrote Uncle Tom’s Cabin, which gained her immediate international recognition and celebrity.
