Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, Written by Herself by Harriet A. Jacobs

This enlarged edition of the most significant and celebrated slave narrative now completes the Jacobs family saga, surely one of the most memorable in all of American history. John Jacobss short slave narrative, < i> A True Tale of Slavery, < /i> published in London in 1861, adds a brothers perspective to Harriet Jacobss own autobiography. It is an exciting addition to this now classic work, as John Jacobs presents additional historical information about family life so well described already by his sister. Importantly, it presents the people, places, and events Harriet Jacobs wrote about from the different perspective of a male narrator. Once more, Jean Yellin, who discovered this long-lost document, supplies annotation and authentication. She has also brought her Introduction up to date.
