Harriet Ann Jacobs narrates a compelling, detailed account of her experience in captivity. Chattel slavery has rarely been described so vividly. There is no other slave narrative quite like Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl. From her initial defiance and rebellion as a young girl to her heroic and selfless plans to escape to freedom with her children, this book will bring you to tears. Her calculated efforts to outwit her cruel slave master Dr. Flint are commendable.
