Publisher's Summary

"Brother, you have often declared that you would not end your days in slavery. I see no possible way in which you can escape with us; and now, brother, you are on a steamboat where there is some chance for you to escape to a land of liberty. I beseech you not to let us hinder you. If we cannot get our liberty, we do not wish to be the means of keeping you from a land of freedom."

The story and its narration were compelling and insightful. Thank goodness for William Wells Brown, his determination, experience and philanthropy of education.

Remarkable and Necessary

An amazing story of human torture and triumph. A detailed, moving look at the life of a runaway slave, delivered excellently by Peter Jay Fernandez.

Great read

Very good book and performance. Americans could learn so much from this autobiography. Sad to say that in many ways nothing has changed.

I had a hard time staying focused

I don’t think I would recommend this book to anyone…pretty flat sounding. You all need some one with a little excitement.

A former and description of an time of destined

It seem some this narrative so identical unto Fredrick Douglas's Narrative although this particular narrative is earlier in the time possibly original and the former copied
