Authors of To Shoot Hard Labour , the book that sold more copies than any other in Antiguan history, Keithlyn and Fernando Smith continue their groundbreaking journey into the life of a simple yet intense Antiguan, unearthing important historical finds along the way. Choosing too tell this courageous story of life in the plan-tation system just after slavery in the colloquial tongue, the authors skillfully treat the reader to a virtual on-location experience, giving not only Antiguans and Barudians, but the entire African diaspora a heart-warming masterpiece. Future generations will thank them for setting a new stan- dard for sharing stories of remarkable Antiguans and Barbudians from a local perspective. Lynrod Douglas Publisher, National Black Pages
