From Bondage to Belonging: The Worcester Slave Narratives Hardcover – Import, 15 Mar 2008
"Eugene McCarthy and Thomas Doughton have done a great service in collecting and editing these stories, for taken together they give us a vivid sense of what it felt like to be a slave. Here are people enduring and witnessing countless scenes of subjection; living in constant fear; feeling alienated from family, friends, community, and self; and struggling to hang onto dreams of freedom, only to discover that life after slavery is much different than freedom's dream. Read these stories straight through, and you will find yourself emotionally exhausted. They are that powerful." - John Stauffer, Harvard University, from the Foreword"
