Fascinating Piece of History

What a tale of survival and triumph! It is hard to believe that this is a real autobiography preserved for almost 250 years! I would dare say it might be the first African-authored book ever written. I enjoyed the tribute to the author added by the publisher at the beginning of this book; it helped me to connect to the story and its author in a real way and gave me a foundational understanding of what I was reading. Well worth the time and money in my opinion!
