"Somewhere along the line, people stopped talking about it. Friends of mine who talk about nothing "except" Southern literature have barely heard of the book. I pounced on it after I discovered that Richard Howorth, the well-read owner of Square Books, the independent bookstore in Oxford, Miss., utters its title aloud every time a customer asks the question, 'What one book would you say best explains the South?' I wish I could say that, this early spring, I read "All God's Dangers" in one sitting. It's not that kind of book. It's a meandering thing; its pleasures are intense but cumulative. This book rolls. But it is superb--both serious history and a serious pleasure, a story that reads as if Huddie Ledbetter spoke it while W. E. B. Du Bois took dictation. That it's been largely forgotten is bad for it, but worse for us. . . . "All God's Dangers " . . . deserves a place in the front rank of American autobiographies. There are many reasons, in 2014, to attend to Ned Cobb's [Nate Shaw's] story."--Dwight Garner "New York Times "

"Extraordinarily rich and compelling . . . possesses the same luminous power we associate with Faulkner."--Robert Coles "Washington Post Book World "

"Eloquent and revelatory. . . . This is an anthem to human endurance."--Studs Terkel "New Republic "

"The authentic voice of a warm, brave, and decent individual. . . . A pleasure to read. . . . Shaw's observations on the life and people around him, clothed in wonderfully expressive language, are fresh and clear."--H.W. Bragdon "Christian Science Monitor "

"Astonishing . . . Nate Shaw was a formidable bearer of memories. . . . Miraculously, this man's wrenching tale sings of life's pleasures: honest work, the rhythm of the seasons, the love of relatives and friends, the stubborn persistence of hope when it should have vanished . . . "All God's Dangers" is most valuable for its picture of pure courage."--Paul Grey "Time "

"A triumph of ideas and historical content as well of expression and style."--Randall Jarrell "Harvard Educational Review "

"Tremendous . . . a testimony of human nobility . . . the record of a heroic man with a phenomenal memory and a life experience of a kind of seldom set down in print. . . . a person of extraordinary stature, industrious, brave, prudent, and magnanimous. . . . One emerges from these hundred of pages wiser, sadder, and better because of them. A unique triumph!"--Alfred C. Ames "Chicago Tribune Book World "

Synopsis

Born in the 1890s, Nate Shaw could neither read nor write, but was able to tell his life story in detail. He had been a member of the Alabama Sharecropper Union in the 1930s, and his account reflects the social history of southern America.

Von Ein Kunde am 21. Dezember 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
it is not often that you can receive such an in depth and personal account of life in the south "post-slavery". even though slavery had been abolished and the south was supposed to be in reformation, nate shaw's true-life account shows how the effects of slavery (on both sides) were lasting and not easily forgotten. Shaw's extremely detailed account helps those of us who were not living in that time and place to get a real understanding of how this country was formed, and will hopefully open your eyes to the unnecessary and hideous reasons people have for discrimination.

Das Leben eines schwarzen Landarbeiters aus Alabama in seinen eigenen Worten. Zu Recht wurde es 1975 mit dem National Book Award prämiert. Zu Unrecht ist dieses wunderbare Buch in Vergessenheit geraten.

Spannend, lustig, traurig und letzten Endes lebensbejahend. Und das von jemand, der im Leben nicht viel zu erwarten hatte. Jedem zu empfehlen, der sich für die Stellung der schwarzen Bevölkerung in der Zeit nach dem Bürgerkrieg interessiert.

Ted Rosengarten is a masterful writer. All God's Dangers is an amazing undertaking that brings Nate Shaw's story to life. After a few pages, it's almost as if you can hear Nate talking. A must read for anyone interested in history and anyone who wants to learn how a book should be written. And Rosengarten's Tombee, if it can be found, is another must read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen As noted by others, one of the best autobiographical memoirs ever published 22. Juni 2014
Von anne - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I cannot state my praise for this book too highly. Theodore Rosengarten did us all such a great service when he took the time to spend with Nate Shaw and record his voluminous recollections of his life as a tenant farmer in the state of
Alabama during the 20th century. We might wonder why it has taken our great nation so long to embrace and manifest the promises made in our Constitution and Bill of Rights to each and every one of our citizens. This volume does a wonderful, although sobering, job, of explaining the way envy and jealousy each play a crucial role in keeping our fellow citizens down. Envy, Shaw explains, affects the actions of his neighbors of color, and jealousy, his neighbors of pallor. Let us each and every one truly pledge never to withhold the benefits of equal access to education and the fundamentals of property rights to our neighbor, regardless of our opinions of his/her religious belief, pallor or orientation.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolutely amazing 25. Juni 2014
Von Teresa Camajani - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I love reading history. Not necessarily so much the big picture stuff - kings, queens, huge wars kind of thing. But history from below. The lived experience of people impacted by the big stuff and how they react. All God's Dangers is that kind of book at its best. In this book we see this on the ground experience of Black people in the south from the end of the civil war into half of the 20th century. I had family who told of events in this same kind of way. Not a straight-forward narrative, but all of the detours were stories in themselves.

So clearly American history. Told by such a good man.

Seriously, my people.... read this book. Be patient, and listen to the story-telling as it was intended to be heard. You will be so glad that you did.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Story of a Strong Man 31. August 2016
Von William R. Rothman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
An inspiring book about hard work, character, wisdom, courage, resistance and accomplishment in the face of extreme poverty and racism in Alabama in the first half of the twentieth century.. "Nate Shaw" (not his real name, author changed from Ned Cobb to protect Cobb while he was alive) was a real American hero. His father was born into slavery, and Cobb was illiterate and impoverished. Most Americans have no concept of hard physical work of the kind Mr. Cobb did from childhood until death, the roadblocks put in his path, and how he fed and protected his wife and children. This is a story that deserves a mass audience.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Head-bending 21. Mai 2014
Von Samuel J McNaughton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
My reading plan since I retired has included a variety of books about the experience of African-Americans in their country. I had never heard of this "autobiography" transcribed from interviews by Rosengarten. It is one of the finest books I have read on any topic. Sure, it rambles, is marked by circumlocution and misdirection, but is story-telling at its best. Here is an A-A who is proud, realistic, hard-working and builds a whole life for his family after starting with nothing, literally nothing, and rising in status by effort, saving his money and using it to better himself, his wife, and his children. Even years in prison for trumped up charges when dishonest Caucasians were aiming to confiscate a neighbor's property didn't throw him of the track. A "not to miss" book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A big-hearted, heroic man 25. April 2014
Von webwiz99 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The plain goodness and consistent charity of this man are evidence
of "man at his best" in the face of truly terrible life situations. While
I winced at what others put him through, from his father to the white men
in his town, his constancy to do them no harm and to raise up his family
and neighbors is a total foil to the cynicism of our time.

If Nate had had some advantages in life, some education, a supportive
father, he could have achieved material prominence.

But, more inspiring, what so shines out is the greatness of the soul of the man.
This is a magnificent story of one man's personal triumph over dreadful odds.

There should be a statue for this man among the American greats in the Capitol.
