Harriet Beecher Stowe
Author's Bio (see also Wikipedia)
It was her first novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin, that established Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896) as an American figurehead. An educator and fervent abolitionist, Stowe achieved worldwide attention for the anti-slavery movement through her unique ability to appeal to the sentiments and compassion of readers worldwide. Although none of her subsequent works could reach the level of fame that Uncle Tom's Cabin enjoyed, Stowe went on to publish several other novels, among them Old Town Folks, Palmetto Leaves, and The Poor Life, all notable for their carefully observed scenes of small-town life.
