Wonderful autobiography. I'd never heard of this remarkable man before.
Samugul
A great book to read! They should have made a movie about Mr. Steward. He has accomplished things that many didn't have an opportunity to have back then; going from a Slave to a Free Black Businessman.
Nilabor
Very important part of our country's history and this book is thoughtfully written. Would recommend.
