    Gripping and moving. Written in the period described it allows the reader insight on many levels. It is not a cry for pity or vent of anger but a humble account. Humble words that bring the society and culture of the time alive. Written, brilliantly, I suspect to help the anti slavery campaign. It is fitting that it will now raise awareness in people of the lessons of history.

    A book I could not put down. A true account which was heart rendering and beautifully written. Explained in detail the deprivation and in humane treatment of a beautiful race of people that God created as our equals. So moving, it will stay with me for a long time.
