  • 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.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Too real!

    18th-century, historical-novel, historical-research, slavery From African villager, to slave, to husband and father, to freedman, to householder, and finally to respected member of the Committee of Safety. This is the journey taken by one remarkable man who suffered from some and helped by others all without leaving the colony he grew up in. Once again the tale is so riveting that it is as if taken from the man's diary (had it not been against the law for him to be able to read). It is deeply brought home to the reader how unjust the laws and how insane is mob mentality. This is a needed read and well written. Shamaan Casey has the depth of empathy and the incredible voice talent to enhance an incredible book to even greater importance.

    Thanks for your feedback!
