Harriet Beecher Stowe shows us, in scenes of great dramatic power, the human effects of a system in which slaves were property. When a Kentucky farmer falls on hard times he is forced to sell his slaves, and among them is Uncle Tom, who's bought by a brutal plantation owner. The novel describes the horror of plantation labour and Tom's fight for his freedom and his life. A rallying cry to end slavery in America and one of the most influential American novels, Uncle Tom's Cabin remains, to this day, controversial and abrasive in its demand for change.
