In this intriguing study, Peter H. Wood tells the story of Blacks in South Carolina from the first British settlement in 1670 to the outbreak of the Stono Rebellion in 1739. White planters, eager to get rich in the new colony, at first welcomed Black enterprise. As Euro-Americans seized upon plantation agriculture, they increasingly tried to suppress Black initiative. With gifted style and well-researched scholarship, Wood conveys the steadily increasing tension that preceded the outbreak of rebellion.
