(4 Sterne)

Great book! We're lucky to have this descriptive first hand account of being born into slavery; living under other people's control; desperate fleeing... Isaac Mason shows his personality in his telling, and he gives us a stark view from inside his environment. I also found it fascinating to notice which details Isaac Mason chose to describe his experiences. The reader is a fine reader, but I would love to hear the voice of a southern African-American man to match the writer and bring us even closer to Mr. Mason's experience.

I enjoy reading the history found in slave narratives. The fact that the story is available to the public is a blessing. Enjoyed the reader.
