This enlarged edition of the most significant and celebrated slave narrative now completes the Jacobs family saga, surely one of the most memorable in American history. John S. Jacobs's short slave narrative, "A True Tale of Slavery", published in London in 1861, adds a brother's perspective to Harriet Jacobs's own autobiography. It is an exciting addition to this now classic work, as John S. Jacobs presents additional historical information about the family life so well described by his sister. It portrays the people, places, and events Harriet Jacobs wrote about from the different perspective of a male narrator. Once more, Jean Yellin, who discovered this long-lost document, supplies annotation and authentication. She has also brought her Introduction up to date.Jacobs, Harriet A. is the author of 'Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl Written by Herself', published 2000 under ISBN 9780674002715 and ISBN 0674002717.
