The amazing life of Henry Box Brown, the daring fugitive who shipped himself out of slavery in a sealed box. Based on more than a decade of research in the United States and England, author Jeffrey Ruggles's book tells the dramatic but true story of Brown, an industrial slave in Virginia, an abolitionist activist in New England, and a performer for a quarter-century on the English stage. This detailed account of the escape story also chronicles Brown's development as a showman while exhibiting his painted panorama, The Mirror of Slavery.
