Description

“â€BOY LOST,†read the advertisement placed in a newspaper by the father of one of

the five free boys kidnapped in Philadelphia in 1825. Richard Bellâ€s heartbreaking and searing

account of their story chronicles not only the agonies and atrocities of slavery, but the fragility of

freedom, and the dauntlessness of resistance.― - Jill Lepore, author of These Truths: A

History of the United States“Opening an unknown world from an unsung tragedy that started

in early national Philadelphia and stretched grimly South, Stolen offers a wormâ€s eye view of

the leviathan of American slavery, and of some of its most dastardly perpetrators and its most

remarkable survivors. Richard Bell has researched inventively and mastered a vast body of

scholarship, as we would expect from so distinguished a historian. But he also imbues his tale with

the deep humanity of a great novelist. Both riveting and heartrending, Stolen joins the great

literature of Americaâ€s founding tragedy, earning a place alongside the work of Harriet

Beecher Stowe, Edward P. Jones, and Toni Morrison.― – Jane Kamensky, Jonathan

Trumbull Professor of American History, Harvard University“Stolen is historical storytelling

at its best. Bell makes brilliant detective work come alive with vivid, powerful writing. The saga of

these five boys, kidnapped and smuggled from Philadelphia to Mississippi in the 1820s, captures

both the powerful undertow of slavery in the free black communities of the North and the urgent

dawning of the abolitionist movement. There's been nothing like it since Northup.― —Adam

Rothman, author of Beyond Freedom's Reach: A Kidnapping in the Twilight of Slavery

“Rigorously researched, heartfelt, and dramatically concise, Bell's investigation illuminates the

role slavery played in the systemic inequalities that still confront Black Americans.― —Booklist

“A well-told story… A deep dive into the extraordinary risks faced by free blacks in the

antebellum era.― —Kirkus Reviews“A fascinating story.―—Library Journal Richard Bell

teaches Early American history at the University of Maryland. He has received several teaching

prizes and major research fellowships including the National Endowment for the Humanities Public

Scholar Award. His first book, We Shall Be No More: Suicide and Self-Government in the Newly

United States, was published in 2012.
