Summary
"In 1849, Henry Brown escaped from slavery by shipping himself in a crate from Virginia to an antislavery office in Philadelphia. Twenty-seven hours and 350 miles later, Brown stepped out of his box to begin a new life. This is his memoir, originally published in 1851 in England, as fresh and compelling today as it was 150 years ago."--BOOK JACKET
