Following the 1851 publication of ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin’, Harriet Beecher Stowe’s monumental classic quickly reached an audience of millions across the world. Stowe’s portrayal of the impact of slavery on African Americans captured the nation’s attention, fuelling debates concerning abolition and slavery, whilst arousing opposition in the South and helping to spark the country into Civil War. For the first time in publishing history, Delphi Classics is proud to present the complete FICTIONAL works of Harriet Beecher Stowe, with ALL the novels, spiced with numerous illustrations, rare texts appearing in digital print for the first time, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
