NEW – Audiobook available November 2018 on Itunes, Amazon and Audible, and paperback edition coming soon!

This account of the life, sufferings and escape of a fugitive slave was published in London in 1855 by the British and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society. It is the autobiography of a simple, sturdy man who spent thirty years as a slave in Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia.

For the introduction in our print version (reissued in 1991 but now out of print), F. N. Boney, University of Georgia, researched records which show that this is an authentic historical source and no mere fabrication of Abolitionist propagandists.

  1. Damian Salandy

    Slave Life in Georgia is a compelling, impactful and important narrative for so many reasons other than that of its historic value. I read this book as a narrator and lived in the skin of the protagonist. Mr. Brown’s story has so many lessons to teach us about the endurance of the human spirit, what it takes to achieve our dreams and goals, the importance of sacrifice, grit, endurance, observation, planning, knowing when to talk and when to shut up. delaying reward etc.
    If you’re a goal setter or would like to be one, do read this book or take a listen to the audio version.
