Description

Sorry friends: eBook not available for Kindle download.

Millions of Africans were enslaved during the transatlantic slave trade, but few recorded their personal experiences. Olaudah Equiano's The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano is perhaps the most well known of the autobiographies that exist. Using this narrative as a primary source text, authors Monica Edinger and Lesley Younge share Equiano's life story in "found verse," supplemented with annotations to give readers historical context. This poetic approach provides interesting analysis and synthesis, helping readers to better understand the original text. Follow Equiano from his life in Africa as a child to his enslavement at a young age, his travels across the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, his liberation, and his life as a free man.

This was emotional and hard to stomach. Some of the things in this book are difficult to comprehend and the level of detail is amazing. The writing captured me from the very beginning too. This was very interesting to read!

I just had to pick this up. It’s children’s non fiction , something that I find comes rarely. Children are always asking questions, in some sense it feels like they themselves are doing that unintentionally. This was great. Highly recommend!
