Chains and Freedom; Or the Life and Adventures of Peter Wheeler: A Colored Man Yet Living; A Slave in Chains, a Sailor on the Deep, a Sinner at the Cross (Classic Reprint) by Edwards Lester the Mountain Wild Flower (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from Chains and Freedom; Or the Life and Adventures of Peter Wheeler: A Colored Man Yet Living; A Slave in Chains, a Sailor on the Deep, a Sinner at the Cross The following Narrative was taken entirely from the lips of Peter Wheeler. I have in all instances given his own language, and faithfully recorded his story as he told it, without any change whatever. There are many astonishing facts related in this book, and before the reader finishes it, he will at least feel that Truth is stranger than fiction. But the truth of every thing here stated can be relied on. The subject of this story is well kwn to the author, who for a long time brake unto him the bread of life, as a brother in Christ, and beloved for the Redeemer's sake. There are, likewise, hundreds of living witnesses, who have for many years been acquainted with the man, and aware of the incidents here recorded, who cherish perfect confidence in his veracity.
