In the first major narrative account of a transformational episode in the life of this extraordinary American, Tom Chaffin chronicles Fredrick Douglass’ 1845-47 lecture tour of Ireland, Scotland, and England. Drawn from hundreds of letters, diaries, and other primary-source documents - many heretofore unpublished - this far-reaching tale includes vivid portraits of personages who shaped Douglass and his world, including the Irish nationalists Daniel O'Connell and John Mitchel, British prime minister Robert Peel, abolitionist John Brown, and Abraham Lincoln.
