    Thanks for your feedback!

    I loved this superb telling of early America.

    This story, a work of historical-fiction is very good! Lars must have done an amazing amount of research. I think he has done an exquisite job of describing the milieu of slaves, freedmen, and residents of North Carolina in the days before the American Revolutionary War. His scene-setting, plotting, and descriptions come across quite authentic. Dialog and action keep the story moving along perfectly. We are brought into the life of a slave turned freedman in a first-rate fashion. His struggles, hopes, and fears are powerfully portrayed. The frequent episodes of racism and discrimination Calabar experiences at the hands of white and black are far more than entertainment. They are a reminder of how vicious one person can be to another, even to this day. I award 4.6 stars to The Freedman: Tales From a Revolution - North-Carolina, the score would have been higher except for the handful of spelling errors I found.
