Synopsis
This powerful narrative conveys the story of Solomon Northup, a free man of color who endured 12 years of intolerable servitude after being kidnapped and sold into slavery.

Northup lived in New York with his wife and three children in Saratoga, New York. He accepted an offer of employment from two alleged circus promoters, accompanying them to Washington as a traveling violinist. An opportunity meant to bolster Northup’s languishing income soon morphed into a treacherous arrangement.

Northup was kidnapped and sold into slavery, later being transported to New Orleans where he endured more than a decade of cruel and inhumane suffering. Northup eventually regained his freedom in 1853, at which time he released his powerful, “12 Years A Slave,” chronicling his journey from free man to slave.

This edition of this timeless classic include additional historical features including:
* Photos from actual places described in the book
* Original from a New York Times Article focusing on Solomon’s kidnapping and legal battles thereafter
* Text from the original advertisement of “12 Years A Slave” published in the August 1853 edition of The Liberator
