Publisher Comments:

One of the most memorable slave narratives, Harriet Jacobs's Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl illustrates the overarching evil and the pervasive depravity of the institution of slavery. Jacobs describes, in great and painful detail, her life as a Southern slave, the exploitation that haunted her daily life, her abuse by her master and the involvement she sought with another white man in order to escape her master, and her determination to win freedom for herself and her children. From her seven years in hiding in a tiny garret in her grandmother's home, to her harrowing escape north to reunion with her children and freedom, Jacobs's Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl remains an outstanding example of a woman's extraordinary courage in the face of almost unbeatable odds, as well as one of the most significant testimonials in American history.
