The Man Who Stole Himself, The Slave Odyssey of Hans Jonathan.
A most interesting book for anyone who wants to learn more about genealogy, the history of slavery and slave relations and freedom. Hans Jonathan was born to a slave mother in St Croix in the West Indies. He was transported to Copenhagen and later escaped to Iceland. And the tale goes on from there to trace his descendants in Iceland and North America. A powerful piece of research, which is still ongoing.
