Praise for Freeman
"[A] uniquely American epic . . . Freeman is an important addition to the literature of slavery and the Civil War, by a knowledgable, compassionate, and relentlessly truthful writer determined to explore both enslavement in all its malignancy and also what it truly means to be free."--Howard Frank Mosher, Washington Post
