What other readers are saying about this title:
Jennifer L. said:
In 1858, a converted luxury yacht named the Wanderer unloaded a cargo of 400 African slaves on the coast of Georgia, 38 years after the importation of slaves had been made illegal. Calonius recounts the ship's voyage to Africa and back, and the highly publicized trial when the truth became known. Photos of the key players and plans of the ship are included. Written in a fast-paced style more reminiscent of thrillers than history books, the highly accessible text digs deep into the motivations for the Civil War and illuminates some of the darkest corners of our nation's past.
