An important work of African American history in the style of Twelve Years a Slave, this compelling 1860 narrative recounts a remarkable escape from the shackles of slavery. Light-skinned Ellen Craft disguised herself as a man; her husband, William, posed as her servant; and the pair successfully traveled from Georgia to Boston. Their story offers fascinating insights into issues of race, gender, and class in 19th-century America.
