Presents the first general-interest history of the early years of the slave trade.Told in part from the decks and the cargo hold of a single merchant slaver, this powerful and fascinating story covers a period that has heretofore been largely the territory of scholars - the late seventeenth century, when the slave trade began a period of explosive growth. Describes the story of the largest forced migration in human hstory, with a powerful text that personalizes the experience of slavery in the most gripping way. Richly illustrated with artifacts found in the wreck of the Henrietta Marie along with etchings and paintings of the time, the book documents a tragic tale of human misery, even as it reveals the strength of spirit that made survival possible for enslaved Africans. Includes an Index.
