About the Author:

William Wells Brown (1814–1884) was born a slave, escaped to the North and then to England, and became one of the most prominent abolitionists of his time. During his prolific literary career, Brown was a pioneer in several different genres, including travel writing, fiction, and drama.


William L. Andrews is E. Maynard Adams Professor of English at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is the author of To Tell a Free Story and editor or coeditor of more than thirty books on African American literature.

From Publishers Weekly:

Classics of African American literature, these two autobiographies from a man who escaped slavery shed light on the "peculiar institution" while revealing a master of prose narrative.
