Off-Site Bookselling of This American Life

Source Booksellers of the official bookseller of This American Life by Hugh B. Price at Detroit Public Library, 5201 Woodward Ave., Detroit.

About the book:

In This African-American Life, Price traces his family’s forbearers, which include several interesting and historically significant ancestors like Nero Hawley, who fought in the American Revolution and served at Valley Forge under Washington and George Latimer and his wife who escaped from slavery in Virginia stowing away on a boat and traveling to the North as a master and salve. When George was spotted by someone from his past, the effort to return him to his master became one of the earliest fugitive slave cases attracting the involvement of Frederick Douglass and William Lloyd Garrison.
