Henry’s Freedom Box BSW1233

US$19.95

A stirring, dramatic story of a slave who mails himself to freedom by a Jane Addams Peace Award-winning author and a Coretta Scott King Award-winning artist. Henry Brown doesn't know how old he is. Nobody keeps records of slaves' birthdays. All the time he dreams about freedom, but that dream seems farther away than ever when he is torn from his family and put to work in a warehouse. Henry grows up and marries, but he is again devastated when his family is sold at the slave market. Then one day, as he lifts a crate at the warehouse, he knows exactly what he must do: He will mail himself to the North. After an arduous journey in the crate, Henry finally has a birthday -- his first day of freedom.

亨利·布朗连自己几岁了都不清楚,毕竟没人会关心一个奴隶的年纪。亨利无时无刻不向往着过自由的生活,可自从踏进烟草厂的那天起,自由开始变得遥不可及。他慢慢长大,还没尝够结婚生子带来的幸福和喜悦,因妻儿被卖,再次对生活绝望!一天,亨利在仓库中搬运箱子时想到一个主意,他把自己装进箱子里,邮寄给了自由。
