Summary

The most widely read woman's slave narrative of all time, Harriet Jacob's 1861 Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, Written by Herself recounts a harrowing existence. In this biography, Jean Fagan Yellin takes us beyond that slender volume to offer the first full picture of the world that inspired Incidents - a world where even after her escape north, Jacobs was harassed by her former owner and living under threat of recapture. Still, determined to "try and be useful in some way," she would not only go on to see her story's publication, but return south during the Civil War to establish a school for black refugees behind Union lines - all the while working to provide for her family. Harriet Jacobs: A Life is not only the culmination of decades of groundbreaking scholarship, but a brilliant restoration of a representative life - one whose sorrows and triumphs reflect the history of the nineteenth century, from slavery to the Civil War to Reconstruction and beyond.
