Now a major motion picture, this remarkable memoir details Solomon Northup's twelve years of slavery, from his capture and his being sold into servitude, to his eventual release. This classic text shows the sheer brutality that was inflicted on slaves in the Deep South, as well as the humanity that eventually helped Solomon regain his freedom.

Also included in this version of Twelve Years a Slave is biographical information detailing Solomon Northup's life after his release from slavery, and a glossary with helpful information on rare and obscure words.

First published in 1853, 12 Years a Slave is the extraordinary account of one man's courage in the face of cruelty and injustice.
