A slave no more : two men who escaped to freedom : including their own narratives of emancipation / David W. Blight.

March 20, 2014 - 3:40pm
Title: A slave no more : two men who escaped to freedom : including their own narratives of emancipation / David W. Blight.
Author: Blight, David W.
Call Number: E450.W325 B58 2009
Description: Slave narratives are extremely rare, with only 55 post-Civil War narratives surviving. A mere handful are first-person accounts by slaves who ran away and freed themselves. Now two newly uncovered narratives join that exclusive group. Handed down through family and friends, they tell gripping stories of escape: Through a combination of intelligence, daring, and sheer luck, the men reached the protection of occupying Union troops. Historian Blight prefaces the narratives with each man's life history. Using genealogical information, Blight has reconstructed their childhoods as sons of white slaveholders, their service as cooks and camp hands during the Civil War, and their climb to black working-class stability in the North, where they reunited their families. In the stories of Wallace Turnage and John Washington, we find portals that offer a rich new answer to the question of how four million people moved from slavery to freedom.--From publisher description.

Life's vital link : the astonishing role of the placenta / Y.W. Loke.

March 17, 2014 - 7:40am
Title: Life's vital link : the astonishing role of the placenta / Y.W. Loke.
Author: Loke, Y. W.
Call Number: RG591 .L65 2013
Description: The development of the placenta was a pivotal event in evolution. The long and tortuous evolutionary road which led from egg-laying reptiles to present-day placental mammals like ourselves was an epic journey spanning over 300 million years. Without the placenta, we would still be laying eggs, instead of giving birth to live offspring. Loke provides an engaging look at this remarkable organ, tracing the life of the placenta from the moment it is created within a fertilized egg, through its brief but eventful stay within the womb.
