Uncle Tom's Cabin / Harriet Beecher Stowe

Title: Uncle Tom's Cabin (Life among the Lowly)
Author: Harriet Beecher Stowe
Subjects: Classic; Fiction

It is an anti-slavery novel. It helped to lay the groundwork for the Civil War in U.S. It was the second best-selling book of the 19th and 20th century. The impact attributed to the book is great, reinforced by a story that when Abraham Lincoln met Stowe at the start of the Civil War, Lincoln declared,
"So this is the little lady who started this great war." This is the best example of a book's great impact on history, and power of writing and author.
