Washington discovers that his father was researching a mystery of his own: why thirteen escaped slaves reached freedom in Chaneysville only to die there, for reasons forgotten or never known at all. A story of personal discovery and historical revelation, The Chaneysville Incident explores the power of our pasts. Based in part on actual events, this extraordinary novel won the prestigious PEN/Faulkner Award and placed David Bradley in the front ranks of contemporary American authors.
