Clavell had never been to Japan Stowe had not spent any time in a slave state She did some research in Boston and corresponded with Frederick Douglass on certain details. But for all that, the book would be written more out of something within her, something she knew herself about bondage and the craving for liberation, than from any documentary sources or personal investigation of black slavery in the South. Indeed she really knew very little about black slavery in the South. McCullough, David. Brave Companions (p. 43). Simon & Schuster. Kindle Edition.
