Description

Twelve Years a Slave: A True Story by Solomon Northup. Illustrated Narrative of Solomon Northup, a Citizen of New-York, Kidnapped In Washington City In 1841, and Rescued in 1853. The Narrative will be read with interest by every one who can sympathise with a human being struggling for freedom.-Buffalo Courier. The volume cannot fail to gain a wide circulation. It will be read extensively, both at the North and South. No one can contemplate the scenes which are here so naturally set forth, without a new conviction of the hideousness of the institution from which the subject of the narrative has happily escaped.-N.Y. Tribune . Next to Uncle Tom"s Cabin, the extraordinary Narrative of Solomon Northup is the most remarkable book that was ever issued from the American press, intended to illustrate what Solomon saw and experienced, Southern Slavery in its various phases.-Detroit Trib. This is one of the most exciting narratives, full of incidents artlessly told, with all the marks of truth.-Cin. Jour.show more
