About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Stedman, Professor John Gabriel

Review:

"The 1790 Narrative is mostly written in direct, earthy prose that evokes the emotional response of a young European captain to the naked breasts of 'beautiful Negroe Maids,' to the clouds of ravenous 'muskitos,' to the tremors of tropical fever... After the passage of two centuries, we now have a superbly edited critical edition of the book Stedman actually wrote." -- David Brion Davis, New York Review of Books
