Twelve Years a Slave by Solomon Northup
Twelve Years a Slave by Solomon Northup
5.0 out of 5 stars A true 'must read'!, 12 April 2014
Really quite enlightening. I've obviously been aware of slavery conditions before, but nothing really compares to reading a first hand account of it. Especially one that's so astonishingly balanced like this. He shows such compassion for his oppressors and a level of understanding that I can barely imagine.

This guy has definitely made it onto my list of historical figures I'd like to meet!
