This fascinating book unearths the sad history of the Norwegian/ Danish slave trade from Africa to the New World, by tracing the route the ships followed. The book is lavishly illustrated with photographs of Africa, the New World, the irons and other devices that imprisoned the slaves, prints from the 18th century, maps, reproductions of original documents dealing with the slave trade, the manifests of the ships, and more. The comprehensive text draws heavily on original sources.
