A few words about book's author

Solomon Northup was a free-born African American from New York, and the son of a freed slave. He lived in Saratoga Springs with his wife and three children and was an accomplished violinist and a carpenter. In 1841 he was kidnapped by slave traders who stole his freedom papers and sold him as a slave in Louisiana. Northup worked on cotton plantations until he was finally able to secretly send a letter to his family.

Northup was finally released after twelve years living and working as a slave. In 1853, with the support of abolitionists, he published his memoir, Twelve Years a Slave. Solomon Northups account is particularly interesting because he describes slavery from the unique point of view of a free man, a skilled worker, and a slave.
