Harriett Beecher Stowe based the character of Uncle Tom on a real slave, Josiah Henson, who suffered as the fictional man did, escaped to Canada and had a career that included preaching, teaching, lecturing, and shepherding folks on the Underground Railway. However, he set a precedence for the behavior of African - Americans in dealing with white people - that of the "pious, subservient Negro, all bows and compromise, " which the term "Uncle Tom" has come to signify. This biography of Henson is Gysin's first book, written before his collaborations with William S. Burroughs in the 1950s. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 276 pages
