Summary
"In 2001, Thomas DeWolf discovered that he was related to the most successful slave-trading family in U.S. history, responsible for transporting at least ten thousand Africans. This is his memoir of the journey in which ten family members retraced their ancestors' steps through the notorious triange trade route -- from New England to West Africa to Cuba -- and uncovered the hidden history of New England and the other northern states."--Cover
