About this title

From the Inside Flap:

One day sixteen-year-old Boyrereau Brinch decided to go swimming with a bunch of his friends at a nearby river. After giving his mother a hug and receiving instructions from his father to behave himself, Brinch dashed off. Little did the teenager know he would never again see his village, his parents, or his brothers and sisters. At the river, Brinch was kidnapped, marched hundreds of miles to the coast of West Africa, and forced naked onto a ship bound for the New World, where he would face a life of toil as an enslaved man. Brinch's true story opens this book, which chronicles the forced transatlantic shipment of millions of African men, women, and children to the New World. More than a million Africans died aboard tightly packed, unsanitary slave ships during the Atlantic slave trade. Millions more endured the pain of whips and chains and the agony of sickness and disease aboard these vessels. They were stripped not only of their freedom but of their families, their identity, and their dignity. The only thing that could be worse than a life of slavery in the New World was the hellish voyage to get there. This is one of the saddest tales in human history, the story of the infamous Middle Passage
