"An excellent edition of a fascinating narrative, one that is as imaginative (and tricky) in its approach as William Wells Brown’s work, as philosophical as anything by Frederick Douglass or Samuel Ringgold Ward, and as forceful as some of Martin R. Delany’s work. Williamson makes a strong case for Loguen’s authorship of the narrative, but even if that authorship continues to be debated, the literary, rhetorical, and philosophical dynamics of this text will be of interest to anyone at all interested in nineteenth-century African American literary, cultural, and intellectual history."—John Ernest, University of Delaware

"The personal record of a major black activist and public intellectual, Loguen’s memoir attests to black leadership on the Underground Railroad and among the increasingly radical foes of slavery on the eve of the Civil War."—William L. Andrews, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
