Customer Questions & Answers for
Penguin Putnam Inc. Amos Fortune, Free Man

Based on the true story of Amos Fortune of Jaffrey, New Hampshire, Amos Fortune was born At-mun, son of an African king. In 1725, when he was 15 years old, he was captured by slave traders, brought to America, and sold at auction. For 45 years, Amos worked as a slave under two masters to buy his own freedom. Free at age 60, and having bought three wives (the first two died less than a year later), Amos eventually moved to Jaffrey, where he started his own tannery, became a full member of the local church, and died a free and prosperous man at the age of 91.

Amos Fortune, Free Man was the 1951 Newbery Medal winner. 192 pages, softcover.
