How a Nearly Successful Slave Revolt Was Intentionally Lost to History
The Lost German Slave Girl (TV Mini-Series) - IMDb
Don't be put off by the clumsy title: this is a marvellous true story, told with all the skill and verve of John Bailey's earlier book, the widely admired The White Divers of Broome. It begins on a steamy spring morning in , when an elderly German woman catches sight of a young, white-skinned slave girl outside a disreputable cabaret in New Orleans. Immediately, and without a skerrick of self-doubt, the old lady identifies the young woman. Driven by the expectation of a better life, by the economic chaos of the years after the Napoleonic wars and by failed harvests - the result of vast volcanic eruptions in distant parts of the globe - the Mullers, accompanied by neighbours, relatives, friends and acquaintances, endured appalling hardships on their way to America.
The Lost German Slave Girl
I really enjoy history books and history based fiction. This book was a very good read. It's about the fight to free a slave girl based on the premise that she is German and not black.
