Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Born into slavery and stolen from their parents, Millie-Christine McKoy eventually toured the world and entertained kings and queens. The conjoined twins' remarkable journey is told here for the first time and has the flavor of the side-show world in which they traveled--a world of giants, midgets, human skeletons and freaks with very human souls.

Book News Annotation:

The cover reads "The remarkable journey of Siamese twins from slavery to the courts of Europe."
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Conjoined twins Millie-Christine endured kidnappings and slavery, in both the United States and England, before rising to prominence as performers in traveling shows throughout Europe.
