Get information about slavery and the US civil war with facts for kids. Slaves were used as a cheap labor force for the plantations of the South. The wealthy plantation owners wanted to maximize the profit they made on growing crops, primarily cotton. Because the cost of slave labor was so low, plantation owners shipped black people from Africa and other parts of the world to the Americas to work on the plantations. Slaves were bought at auctions and then began a life of hard work, usually in appalling conditions. The work was difficult and exhausting, and frequently in hot and miserable surroundings.

Slavery is a comprehensive look at the history of an abomination. Words and images reveal the story of slavery around the world and across the centuries, focusing on slavery in the United States in the 1800s. This authoritative, heavily illustrated guide looks at the escalation of the Atlantic slave trade, the African peoples who were targeted, the lives they led as slaves in the American South, the slow growth of worldwide anti-slavery movements, abolition in the United States, the Civil War, Reconstruction, and more. Understand slavery-and how America's slave past has influenced its racial atmosphere today-with Slavery.

This is a good overview of Slavery in the United States. In addition, there are numerous photos and color illustrations. However, while "Slavery" is very broad in its scope, it doesn't go into much detail.

For example, Harriet Tubman is mentioned on only two pages. First on a timeline (1849: Harriet Tubman escapes from slavery in the southern US) and the second time with a photo and a two-sentence caption--fifty-two words in all. David Walker is not mentioned at all. Neither is Lucy Terry, or Benjamin Banneker, or Harriet Jacobs, or Robert Smalls. These are all significant figures in the history of slavery.

On the plus side, this is a quick read. Lots of pictures, captions, graphs, and charts; but there is not a single text block on any page that exceeds 100 words. Everything is presented in small chunks. It makes for easy reading and my high school sophomores eagerly page through the book. But it is not very thorough.

Bottom line? This book skims the surface and provides you with major people and events. But if you're looking for a more detailed account, you will need to look elsewhere for the entire story. It's a good place to start; just don't plan on stopping with this book and think you know everything there is to know about slavery. RECOMMENDED

We used this for homeschool to introduce a platform of insight and to welcome further questions. Was excellent for this.

This book may not be complete, few ever are when it comes to this topic, but it is a great place for kids (and adults) to start.

I bought this book for homeschooling my 7 year old daughter. I really like the personal accounts scattered throughout the book. It does a great job of making history "real," or personal. She is really enjoying the book and we are both learning a lot from it.

My granddaughter had a homework lesson to do in school on this book last year. My husband fell in love with the book and I was glad to see it offered.
