Amazing and true tales from the days of slavery as told by the slaves themselves.
From the 'night the stars fell' to the incident where 60 slave babies died in one day.
This is a sometimes graphically tragic book that is generously mixed with humour, but contained within most of these stories is an awe inspiring amount of courage and a deep spirituality from which most slaves gained their daily strength.
This title from the AMERICAN SLAVE SERIES of books delves into a multitude of subjects including the breeding of slaves for profit, encounters with wild animals, patrollers, wicked overseers, murder and work in the fields.
A must read for those interested in the dark days of American slavery and an excellent resource for those interested in African American History
