Note
Published in 1853, this true story was a bombshell in the national debate over slavery leading up to the Civil War and helped tilt public opinion in favor of abolition. Solomon captures the reality of slavery in stunning detail as we learn about the characters that populate plantation society and the intrigues of the bayou--from the collapse of a slave rebellion resulting in mass hangings due to traitorous slave Lew Cheney to the tragic end of his slave friend Patsey because of her master's jealous wife. Finally, a friend from New York attempts a courageous rescue that could either result in Solomon's greater suffering or death, or get him back to the arms of his family
