His infamous Confessions of an English Opium-Eater made history as the first book about drug dependency. He invented the word subconscious and anticipated Freuds psychoanalytic theories by more than a half century. His blood-soaked essays and stories influenced Edgar Allan Poe, who in turn inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to create Sherlock Holmes.But at the core of it all was a terrible tragedy. In this special-edition novella, based on real-life events, De Quincey shares the story of a horrific snowstorm fifty years earlier, in which a mother and father died and their six children were trapped in the mountains of the Lake District.

Even more gripping is what happened after. This is the true tale of how De Quincey became the Opium-Eater, brought to life by an award-winning storyteller.An afterword contains photos of the dramatic locations in the story.
