The book is fascinating. It is in effect the diary of a man seized as a boy in central Africa by members of his own tribe and sold into slavery. An account is given of his progressive "sales" across Africa until he reached the coast and was embarked on a slave ship. Whether he had "rose tinted memories" or was lucky, his treatment as a boy was better than the average, until he reached the British West Indies. Thereafter his treatment was always better than one might expect and he describes the life (or his life) as a slave with relative freedom to move around and engage in minor trade. One is struck with his attitude towards slavery which he seems to regard as perfectly normal if undesirable to be one, The account was written at a time when he was a free man if in Britain or a slave if in the West Indies. He went on to serve on board ship and that account is in itself of interest.
