Packaged in handsome, affordable trade editions, Clydesdale Classics is a new series of essential literary works. It features literary phenomena with influence and themes so great that, after their publication, they changed literature forever. From the musings of literary geniuses like Mark Twain in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn to the striking personal narrative of Solomon Northup in Twelve Years a Slave, this new series is a comprehensive collection of our history through the words of the exceptional few.

One of the only surviving female slave narratives from the twentieth century, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl is an autobiographical account written by Harriet Jacobs. The narrative documents the extreme adversity she overcame before she eventually achieved her freedom. Born into slavery, young Harriet was taken into the care of her mother's mistress, who treated her relatively well. However, a few years later, the mistress passed away and her cruel, abusive relatives inherited Harriet.

Under the pseudonym ?Linda Brent," Jacobs recounts within the book the horrific injustices she encountered: sexual abuse, extreme cruelty, exploitation, being denied motherhood when her children are sold to another slave owner. In Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, Harriet's agonizing descriptions are indicative of what many other enslaved African American women suffered through during this tragic time in American history.

Published in 1861, just on the brink of the Civil War, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl is a harrowing literary work bringing to light the courage, empowerment, and perseverance a young slave found in her desperate search for freedom.

"Remnants Of A Life: Stripped. Raw. Pure." is the fourth in a series of collections of poetry, written by Gia Marcs, while living and traveling throughout the world as a young woman. It is poetry based on her experiences and also of those around her. The writings in these collections weave their way through the process of negotiating one's identity being raised within the worlds of two cultures, as well as various stages of life, relationships and emotions as the writer experiences bliss, passion, lust, pain, and betrayal while searching for the illusive answer to a vagabond's perpetual question: "What and where is 'home?' The collections open a door and go beyond the wall to an unguarded heart where all censorship falls away.
