Details

The famed account of 18th-century slavery in South America, “made more readable by moderate editorial changes . . . A well-accomplished abridgment” (Colonial Latin American Historical Review).

This abridgment of Richard and Sally Price’s acclaimed 1988 critical edition is based on John Gabriel Stedman’s original, handwritten manuscript, which offers a portrait at considerable variance with the 1796 classic.

The unexpurgated text, presented here with extensive notes and commentary, constitutes one of the richest and most evocative accounts ever written of colonial life—and one of the strongest indictments ever to appear against New World slavery.
