After enduring more than 30 years of slavery, Henry “Box” Brown achieved freedom by having himself nailed inside a packing crate and shipped from Richmond, VA to Philadelphia, PA.

Initially published in 1851, Brown’s extraordinary memoir recounts the harsh circumstances of his bondage as well as the details of his 350 mile journey by railroad, steamboat, and horse cart inside a container three feet long and two feet wide.

Lightly used book in good condition.
