He describes his bitter childhood, his coming to America where he found a friend and a name, his service in the American Civil War, his African adventures, and his late but happy marriage.

Synopsis:

"Enduring appeal. . . . [Farewell] has handled his material expertly, presenting it with freshness and vigor." --

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 321-326) and index.
