Josiah Henson's autobiography, "The Life of Josiah Henson, Formerly a Slave (1849), inspired the title character of Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin. <br /><br />Henson's last autobiography "Uncle Tom's Story of his Life" was published in 1876 and had the enormous sale of 100,000 copies, being translated into twelve languages. <br /><br />"This is the 'Life' of one of God's true heroes, and what a 'Life'! Those who want a 'sensation' will find it in this book. If their blood does not boil, and their nerves tingle, and their souls thrill, they must be stones, and not men and women with human brain and heart." --Theological Review<br /><br />Josiah Henson was born on a farm near Port Tobacco, Maryland. When he was a boy, his father was punished for standing up to a slave owner, for which he received one hundred lashes. In addition, his right ear was nailed to the whipping post and then cut off. <br /><br />"Uncle Tom," with a beautiful lack of anything approaching to conceit or selfconsciousness, shows himself to have been through life a true hero. The trials and sufferings of his lot as a slave, severe as they were, were borne by a brave and cheerful heart, which in the darkest hour did not yield to despair, and the painfulness of reading some portions of the account is alleviated by the recollection that the accursed institution of slavery has been got rid of in America. Every one who I begins to read it will be sure to read it to the end.<br /><br />Josiah Henson (1789 – 1883) was an author, abolitionist, and minister, who was born into slavery, in Port Tobacco, Maryland. He escaped to Upper Canada (now Ontario) in 1830, and founded a settlement and laborer's school for other fugitive slaves at Dawn, near Dresden, British Canada. He detailed his life experiences as as slave and abolitionist in his 1876 book "Uncle Tom's Story of His Life."<br /><br />Contents<br />I. MY BIRTH AND CHILDHOOD.<br />II.

As an expatriate American mineralogist/geologist now residing in Australia I led a tourist culture trip to visit the Hopi, Apache and Navajo tribes of northern Arizona to learn about the Native America customs, medicines, arts and crafts. But while we were with the White Mountain Apache, the unexpected medium-ship of a woman in our group turned the trip into a quest to fulfill a promise made by the three women and myself to the Native American people over five hundred years ago. A vow that had been made during the invasion by the Spanish Conquistadores when they raped, looted and massacred over two hundred old men, women and children trapped in a rock shelter at Canyon del Muerto. Come with me on the journey !
