In 1755, an 11-year-old African boy named Olaudah Equiano was kidnapped, forced into a sack, and carried off into slavery. Thus began a series of journeys that would take him halfway around the world--and a struggle for freedom that would make him famous. The story of his triumph over injustice and despair became an international bestseller. 10 historical engravings.
"The inspired simplicity of Cameron's adaptation quickly allows Equiano's gifted voice to establish a compelling relationship between himself and young readers. Well-sculpted with detail . . . his story is a must for multicultural or history collections."—School Library Journal
"Readers . . . will be fascinated by the details in this account."—The Bulletin

This is so so so sad why did there ever have to be slaves and why did they have to kidnap a boy at such a young age and make him their slave for eleven more years I hope this is not a true story because if it is im about to cry thank lord i was born in the free years a lot of questions remain about slaves but are not getting answers happy late black history month to every race because i am not about to be racist and only say happy black history month to black people because there are a lot of races that stood up to slavery maan i wish i was there to witness slavery .and i know i am doing a lot of talking but this type of stuff needs to be understood by them youngings and oldies that be racist and remember ,"treat people how you want to be treated back" thank you for all of your time you peacemakers im glad most of you understand what the word peace means thank you so much bye bye!

This book was ok, i had to read it for school, but a year went by in like, one page and it was SO sad so if you dont like sad books(like me) i would get a different book.

My social studies teacher is always hard at work to help her students at all times. Peaple at the middle school may call her strict or mean but i have to say she is the best teacher ever. She has many skills of remembering things and can dance to cha cha slide pretty darn good. MsI recommended this book because w e were learning about slaves. It is about a prince in first person point of veiw who is captured and takend to the states. His master figures out that he is educated and sets him free to finnish his educationu
