eBook description:

Mary: A Story of Young Mary Prince: Sold at a slave auction and fearing for her life, she runs away.

Mary Prince is twelve years old in 1800 when her life turns upside down. Her slave-owner Betsey Williams, a girl close to her own age, also owns Mary’s mother and siblings. Betsey’s father is desperate for money. Against his daughter’s wishes, he sells Mary and her sisters at auction. Captain John Ingham buys Mary for £57 Bermudian currency, and she is separated from her family. The Captain and his wife are cruel to their slaves, and Mary is in terrible peril. She runs away and hides in a small cave, but, eventually, she must return to the Captain’s home.

This illustrated historical fiction novella for Junior-aged readers is inspired by Mary Prince’s 1831 slave narrative, The History of Mary Prince, A West Indian Slave, Related by Herself. It is also based on Maddison-MacFadyen’s PhD research, of which Mary Prince is the historical subject. The novella is perfect for classroom, library, or home collections. Included are excerpts from Mary Prince’s testimony and images of historical documents and photographs that confirm her story.
