Twelve Years a Slave (1853) is a memoir and slave narrative by Solomon Northup, as told to and edited by David Wilson. Northup, a black man who was born free in New York, details his kidnapping in Washington, D.­C. and subsequent sale into slavery. After having been kept in bondage for 12 years in Louisiana by various masters, Northup was able to write to friends and family in New York, who were in turn able to secure his release.

"This is no fiction, no exaggeration. If I have failed in anything, it has been in presenting to the reader too prominently the bright side of the picture. I doubt not hundreds have been as unfortunate as myself; that hundreds of free citizens have been kidnapped and sold into slavery, and are at this moment wearing out their lives on plantations...­" - Solomon Northup, _­Twelve Years a Slave_

The classic 1968 edition with historical notes WITH A NEW foreword by Karolyn Smardz Frost.­Solomon Northup was a free man, the son of an emancipated Negro Slave. Until the spring of 1841 he lived a simple, uneventful life with his wife and three children in Upstate New York. Then, suddenly, he fell victim to a series of bizarre events that make this one of the most amazing autobiographies ever written.­Northup accepted an offer from two strangers in Saratoga, New York, to catch up with their traveling circus and play in its band. But when the chase ended, Northup had been drugged, beaten, and sold to a slave trader in Washington, D.­C. Subsequently, he was shipped to New Orleans, where he was purchased by a planter in the Red River region of Louisiana. For the next twelve years Northup lived as a chattel slave under several masters. He might well have died a slave, except for another set of bizarre circumstances which enabled him to get word to his family and finally regain his . . .

El mejor testimonio sobre la época más sombría de la historia estadounidense son las desgarradoras memorias de Solomon Northup, un afroamericano nacido como hombre libre en Nueva York. Las escribió después de haber pasado doce años esclavizado en varias plantaciones de Luisiana. Corría el año 1841 cuando fue engañado, secuestrado y vendido. Desapareció sin dejar rastro.­Su relato es sobrecogedor y su punto de vista, inusual, pues Northup conoció de primera mano qué significaba ser un hombre libre y ser víctima de la esclavitud. Su valioso libro ha perdurado por ser una crónica sobre el mal y el lado oscuro del ser humano, pero nos lega asimismo un bello tratado acerca de la amistad y de la superación.­«Esta historia es más poderosa que cualquier obra de ficción.­»Cincinnati Journal (1853)
