From the Publisher"Deepens our understanding of resistance as both an individual and collective endeavor. [Camp] argues forcefully. . . . Intriguing and interesting."
— The Journal of Interdisciplinary History
"This slim volume makes a substantial and often ingenious contribution to slavery studies and to women's and southern history..."
—l American Historical Review
"Wonderfully evocative. . . . A provocative book full of astonishing, sometimes unforgettable moments."
— Virginia Magazine
"Camp's creative and elegant work reinforces the interconnectedness of North and South, slave and free, in the lives of enslaved people."
"Very readable yet analytically sophisticated. . . . Camp seamlessly integrates a wide array of sources . . . into an engaging book that does more than recount women's experiences as slaves in the plantation South. . . . An excellent study of bondwomen and a penetrating look at the rival geographies created by enslaved people."
— Journal of Southern History
"Sensitive, bold, and imaginative, the first book to place black women at the center of everyday resistance to bondage.
(Douglas R. Egerton, Le Moyne College, author of Gabriel's Rebellion: The Virginia Slave Conspiracies of 1800 and 1802)"
