Pressestimmen"Williams's narrative contributes a distinctive dimension to our understanding of the development of 'Black Atlantic' writing. His is a rare account of a slave's transition to freedom under the conditions of the British emancipation program in Jamaica. The rich historical and social texture provided by Paton enhances this striking narrative's import."--William L. Andrews, coeditor of "The Civitas Anthology of African American Slave Narratives"
