About the Author

Solomon Northup (c.1808 - c. 1863), was a free-born African American landowner from New York state who was kidnapped and solid into slavery in 1841, without a word to his wife or children. After twelve horrifying years in the Red River region of Louisiana, he finally regained his freedom, returning to his family in New York and publishing his memoir in 1853. Northup's book was a bestseller, and he became an outspoken abolitionist before disappearing from historical record around the year 1857.

Honestly, i thought of completing this book within 5 days as it has around 250 pages. But it is taking me more than that because of the complex words and sentence phrasing. I am using my phone to look up some words. It is a very informative book. You may feel bored initially, but my rule is to read 40 pages straight away whatever it may be.
