Old Man Henson From Slavery to Freedom

by Meyler, Peter

This very unique book, the recollection of an African American known as Old Man Henson, is one of the very few that documents the journey to Canada from the perspective of a former slave. Henson was a great storyteller and the spark of life shines through as he describes the horrors of slavery and his goal of escaping its tenacious hold. The stories will both amuse and shock readers.

Paperback, 220 pages, Illustrated, notes, bibliography, index.
