Book Review: The Refugee: Narratives of Fugitive Slaves in Canada
This is going to be a very short review. I picked up The Refugee: Narratives of Fugitive Slaves in Canada by Benjamin Drew at Chapters a while ago. I love history books, especially when there is a local connection. I tried to read this book but, instead of sweeping me into the past with tales of hardship and salvation won, it was a repetitive and very obviously edited litany of slavery is bad and Canada is good. On this concept, I think we are all in agreement. This book was an editorial of why Canada is good and the United States is bad. Perhaps the book would have improved if I had continued reading but I just couldn't force myself to carry on. That's all I have to say.
