Reviews of The History of a Slave

“Slavery is an evil not yet purged completely from the world. The History of a Slave is a republishing of H.H. Johnston’s fictional telling drawn from true accounts of a slave brought through Africa and facing cruelty from many sources and witnessing countless acts inflicted on others. Paul Lovejoy presents this updated edition with additional information, annotations, and discussion on historical significance, as well as the original illustrations. The History of a Slave is a must-read literary piece that focuses on one of humanity’s greatest evils.”
