This fascinating biography tells the story of nineteenth-century America through the life of one of its most magnetic and influential characters: Sojourner Truth. Sojourner Truth's America examines the complex dynamics of the times in which Truth acted, highlighting the transnational contours of her spirituality and early life as a slave, her awakening during nineteenth-century America's progressive surge, and her ascendancy as a rousing preacher and political orator despite her inability to read and write. Sojourner Truth's America provides important insights into the turbulent cultural and political climate of the age while also separating the many myths from the facts concerning this legendary American figure. Margaret Washington is a professor of history and American studies at Cornell University. She is the author of the award-winning book "A Peculiar People": Slave Religion and Community-Culture Among the Gullahs and the editor of The Narrative of Sojourner Truth.
