215 pp, 8 5/8" H. B&w illustrations. "This is the story of the life of Josiah Henson, an ex-slave who escaped to Canada and founded the Negro refugee colony in Dawn, Ontario. Using his own memoirs and other contemporary sources, Miss Beattie has given us an authentic and exciting picture of this arresting figure in Canadian life, whose early years provided Harriet Beecher Stowe with material for her character of Uncle Tom. In its mixture of tragedy and happiness, of hope and despair, of grim struggle and triumphant achievement, this is the saga of an oppressed race in its slow and painful advance to freedom, in which Canada played so notable a part." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, minor edge wear. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling, light soiling - mainly on rear panel, a few small edge tears and tiny chips, scuffing at bottom part of spine, small light stain on front flap-fold - shows mainly on inside surface.
