Summary (From the publisher):

From the publisher
Born into slavery on a U.S plantation in 1759. Daniel has no experience of life beyond the boundaries of his masters' land until an event occurs which changes his life forever. Daniel is cast out of the plantation into a hostile world. He embarks on a journey which will span continents, test his courage and endurance to the limit and expose him to the horror of the slave trade.

Daniel's experience as a crew member of a slave ship is so profound that he becomes determined to campaign for the abolition of the UK slave trade. In doing so, he adds his voice to those of the great reformers of the age, including Thomas Clarkson and the great William Wilberforce.

Daniel's story is testimony to the resilience of the human spirit and how one man can make a difference. As we approach the anniversary of the abolition of slavery act, Daniel's story reminds us of the determination and fortitude of those who brought about that change and continue to inspire us.
