Women's Slave Narratives

by Annie L Burton et al - £6.99  Dover Publications (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780486445557 | ISBN 10: 0486445550

The moving testimonies of five African-American women comprise this unflinching account of slavery in the pre-Civil War American South. Covering a wide range of narrative styles, the voices provide authentic recollections of hardship, frustration and hope - from Mary Prince's ground-breaking account of a lone woman's tribulations and courage, the spiritual awakening of "Old Elizabeth", and Mattie Jackson's record of personal achievements, to the memoirs of Kate Drumgoold and Annie L Burton.
