Product description

Born a free man in New York State in 1808, Solomon Northup was kidnapped in Washington, D.C., in 1841. He spent the next 12 years as a slave on a Louisiana cotton plantation, and during this time he was frequently abused and often afraid for his life. This is his detailed description of slave life and plantation society.

By Bereth Sofie Kozma 29 Jul 2014 5

This really gave some insight not only for how it was, but also for what kind of mental torture the poor slaves went through.
This book broke my heart, but it also a story of hope.
And the incredible strenght of this man.
