The Story of the Amistad

by Emma G Sterne


Quick Overview

Gripping tale of the epic 1839 voyage of the schooner "Amistad" and her cargo of Africans bound for slavery in the New World. The Africans revolt, seize the ship, and start for home. Are the rebellious slaves mutineers or honest men and women who sought to regain their freedom?


Until the movie AMISTAD was released five years ago, most Americans had never heard of the famed slave ship that caused such a ruckus and illustrated to the world how fractured the United States was on the issue of slavery. Taking it's cue from the movie, this book had it's named changed from THE LONG BLACK SCHOONER to THE STORY OF THE AMISTAD. The book tells the story surrounding the Amistad. However, it is told in a way that is appealing to both youth and adults. The language is simple and the story is straightforward. There is no historical gobbly-gook here. Size 0.32" H x 8.28" L x 5.16" W, 128 pages
