"Solomon Northup: The Complete Story of the Author of" Twelve
Years A Slave provides a compelling chronological narrative of
Northup's entire life, from his birth in an isolated settlement in
upstate New York to the activities he pursued after his release
from slavery. This comprehensive biography of Solomon Northup picks
up where earlier annotated editions of his narrative left off,
presenting fascinating, previously unknown information about the
author of the autobiographical "Twelve Years A Slave."
This book examines Northup's life as a slave and reveals details
of his life after he regained his freedom, relating how he traveled
around the Northeast giving public lectures, worked with an
Underground Railroad agent in Vermont to help fugitive slaves reach
freedom in Canada, and was connected with several theatrical
productions based upon his experiences. The tale of Northup's life
demonstrates how the victims of the American system of slavery were
not just the slaves themselves, but any free person of color all of
whom were potential kidnap victims, and whose lives were affected
by that constant threat.
