Product Description

First published in 1853, 12 Years a Slave is the riveting true story of a free black American who was sold into slavery, remaining there for a dozen years until he finally escaped. This powerfully written memoir details the horrors of slave markets, the inhumanity practiced on southern plantations, and the nobility of a man who persevered in some of the worst of conditions, a man who never ceased to hope that he would find freedom and see his beloved family again.

This edition has been slightly edited–for spelling and punctuation only–for easier reading by a modern audience. It also includes two helpful appendixes not found in the original book. Now a major motion picture!
