Additional Details

first edition, gift binding. A semi-fictionalized account of a fugitive slave based on the experiences of the author while living in the South. While somewhat melodramatic at times, there is quality detail to Pierson's story not found in the usual anti-slavery fiction of the day. Hampton catalogue, 4463; Howard II, page 119; Work, page 466; Hubbard, No 871.
