You can download the e-book version of Twelve Years a Slave by Solomon Northrup for just $.99.
This compilation also includes these 5 additional American Slave Narratives:
- Life of Frederick Douglass (Frederick Douglass)
- Uncle Tom’s Cabin (Harriet Beacher Stowe)
- Life of Josiah Henson (Josiah Henson)
- Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl (Harriet Ann Jacobs)
- Up From Slavery (Booker T. Washington)
This movie, which won best motion picture drama at the Golden Globes this past weekend, is based on this book which was originally published in 1853. I am really looking forward to seeing the movie, but I definitely want to read this book first.
And the additional free ebooks that come with it are great for our teaching of Black History Month. Quite the bargain for just $.99 total.
Even if you don’t have a Kindle, you can download FREE applications to read Kindle books on your Mac, PC, iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Phone 7, or Android Phone.
The price of this e-book is $.99 right now, but Amazon can change the price at any time – so always confirm before ordering.
Thanks, Daily Cheapskate.
