Uncle Tom's Cabin, or Life Among the Lowly


An anti-slavery novel published in 1852, Uncle Tom's Cabin had a profound impact on the American landscape and is widely credited with fueling the abolitionist movement, and contributing materially to the the tensions leading up to the American Civil War.

Readers interested in Uncle Tom's Cabin might also take in interest in Solomon Northup's Twelve Years a Slave, an 1853 memoir that is the basis of Steve McQueen's 2013 blockbuster movie "12 Years a Slave." Taken together, Uncle Tom's Cabin and Twelve Years a Slave altered the course of United States history. To share with young children, you might enjoy Stowe's adaptation of her book, Uncle Tom's Cabin, Young Folks' Edition, published in 1913.
