5.0 out of 5 stars I felt it was a true narrative. 24 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It was ,sadly, how slaves were treated.

If you look at how those in power treat those that they think are 'beneath them' you'll possibly find, there cruelties in common with all of them.

And Patsy's ordeal was so typical. Were both 'men' involved in the kidnapping ? Possibly or possibly not.

The Author very charitably records that he is unsure also.

Best wishes,

Marjorie.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read 11 Jan 2014
By William Butler - Published on Amazon.com
This was the most fascinating untold story that I have ever read. Solomon Northup is very detail in describing the events and individuals who were a part of his journey. This is a must hear. I recommend hearing before seeing the movie. The slaves narratives are amazing in itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 5 Jan 2014
By Sharon V. Porter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book gives the reader great insight into slavery, the slave trade and the mindset of the southern plantation owners. Although many movies have been made and many books written, to read about this horrible time in our history from the perspective of a slave, once a free man, is mind boggling! It makes the reader involuntarily shake his head in wonder and feel embarrassed to be a citizen of a land that once treated humans worse than animals. One can only wonder in amazement at the ignorance of such men! Mr. Northrop endured 12 years of cruel and I humane treatment only to eventually be reunited with his family. His account leaves one to wonder how many free men were sold and died in slavery!
