Random House, Inc.
In this groundbreaking compilation of first-person accounts of the runaway slave phenomenon, editors Devon Carbado and Donald Weise have recovered twelve narratives spanning eight decades—more than half of which have been long out of print. Told in the voices of the runaway slaves themselves, these narratives reveal the extraordinary and often innovative ways that these men and women sought freedom and demanded citizenship.

Baker & Taylor
Collects the accounts of runaway slaves from the antebellum South, including Frederick Douglass, Nat Turner, and Henry Box Brown.
