I tried reading this book years ago, but never finished due to the “slave accent” used by the writer. The audio book is much easier. This particular version is outstanding due to the skill of the narrator. The narrator does an outstanding job of giving each of the many characters a different voice. He also sings the hymns that are in the book.

Listening to this book will change your perception of Uncle Tom. I think it is very unfortunate that “Uncle Tom” is used as a racial insult. The character Uncle Tom is a very honorable man who sacrificed himself for his family.

This book is a short, first person story on the authors perspective of the African slave trade. He talks about multiple perspectives of the Slave trade including capture, life onboard a slave ship and arrival in the “West Indies”. Some of the stories are very disturbing and lead you to wonder how slave traders could lose their humanity by participating in this tragedy.
