Perhaps no horror of slavery in America was more degrading and cruel than the separation of families. In this true 1862 biography, you’ll witness one woman’s long hope and struggle that after decades reunited her with her son.
THERE are very few Anti-Slavery books adapted to the young, yet no field could furnish a more attractive literature for children than this. Robinson Crusoe and the Arabian Nights would seem lifeless and uninteresting by the side of hundreds of true and simple narratives which might be written of slave life in our Southern States. This story of “Aunt Sallyâ€ is probably no more remarkable than multitudes of others; only it has chanced to come to notice. It is strictly true in all its incidents. It has not been embellished, or wrought up for effect, but is given, as nearly as possible, in the words in which it was related to the writer.
