Summary
This book was an abridged and unauthorised reprint of the earlier 'Slavery in the United States' (1836). The narratives describe experiences as a slave, including the uncertainty of slave life and the ways in which the slaves are forced to suffer inhumane conditions. The text recounts the qualities of the various masters and the ways in which fortune depended on their temperament. As slave narrative scholar William L. Andrews has noted, the author's oft-repeated narrative directly influenced the manner and matter of later fugitive slave narratives
