Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The following is the explanation behind the dedication, "To the Unknown Child."  Many years ago on a summer day I was driving along a residential street in Modesto, CA.  I saw a group of young girls, ages 12 to 14, standing on the sidewalk. Suddenly a young black girl broke away from the group and began a stumbling run away from them.  She was sobbing as only a heart-broken child can. The other girls shouted hateful slurs at the fleeing figure. I yelled at them to stop which they did. (It was a time when parents parented rather than phoning their lawyer.)

I watched as the little girl disappeared around the far corner of the block but I've never forgotten her, her pain and her expulsion from the group.  She became the "unknown child."

Many years later, while waiting in an office for an appointment, I picked up the entertainment section of the local paper. There was a one column, two inch article about a play that had opened. It was unusual in that it was written by black people, acted by black people and purported to shine a light on slavery.  The article quoted the opening line. "Before the coming of the white man all the tribes in Africa lived in peace and harmony."  I was enough of an historian to know a false statement when I saw it but it got me to digging even deeper into the history of slavery.  

The more I dug, the more interesting facts I found. Here are just two of them

When looking at the world history of slavery, there were far more non-blacks enslaved then there were blacks.

Muslim slavers have been taking black slaves out of Africa for over two thousand years....  far longer than white slavers operated.

After about three years of research, The Slavers became a novel.

I hope you enjoy it.

Once I started, I couldn't put it down. The plot is engrossing. The characters so well described, you can see them standing in front of you. The imagery so real, you can feel it all! Great writing! Haven't enjoyed a book this much in a long time. I'm ready for Mr. Brinton's next masterpiece!
