So many books I have not read and this was one of them. I picked it up at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago for 25 cents. Just started reading it and if not for things I must do, I would read it straight through without stopping.
I am really enjoying the way this is written, It is a simple book, it reads very easy.
This picture was taken during the Civil War. Harriet is to the far left with the pan in her hand.
I love history, the good and the bad of it. There are things we should know so we can understand other cultures. When I was a little girl, I was afraid of people of color. And as I grew up I continued to not understand who they were. Books like this one tell a story, they give you a light into a world we have never know.
In these times, it would be good to know more about the people we fear. To understand why they are the people they are, and where all the anger came from….just a thought.
Have a really special weekend!
