The history of slavery is central to understanding the history of the United States. Slavery and the Making of America offers a richly illustrated, vividly written history that illuminates the human side of this inhumane institution, presenting it largely through stories of the slaves themselves. This is a companion volume to the PBS Series. Includes an Index. "This is the gripping tale of the African and African American experience, full of drama, tragedy, and courage. The Hortons demonstrate their wide mastery of the literature, telling the tragic and triumphant story of the peculiar institution through the words and experiences of the people who lived it." - Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Harvard University
