BLWinner of the Pulitzer Prize for best biography Still debated today for its portrayal of African-Americans, Stowe's best-known work, Uncle Tom's Cabin, caused such a stir on publication that when she met President Lincoln in 1862 he greeted her with the words, `So you are the woman who wrote the book that created this great war!'. This is the first full-scale biography of Harriet Beecher-Stowe in over fifty years. Joan Hedrick takes the reader into the multi-layered world of nineteenth-century morals and mores in this absorbing story of a gifted and complex writer whose place in the canon is still contended.
