Harriet Beecher Stowe’s story, Uncle Tom’s Cabin was loosely based on the life of Josiah Henson. Her book did much to convince people that slavery was evil, and must be ended. Marie Stuart has looked at Josiah Henson’s own account, and it is very different, but equally convincing. A slave, whose loyalty to his masters is betrayed again and again, decides that his only option is a dangerous one, to escape with his wife and four children.
