Originally published in 1711, this fascinating account is re-written for young readers by Jean-Jacques Vayssières. The Amazing Adventures of Equiano traces the journey of a young African boy of the Igbo tribe, from his capture by Africans and then by whites when he was ten years old, his arduous but adventure filled life as a slave, as well as his experiences and his participation in the anti-slavery movement as a free man. The story is accompanied by superb full-colour illustrations done by the author himself, which bring to life various scenes of Equianos life, especially his love for the sea, the gateway to his incredible adventures. The renewal of interest in this narrative and the publication of this work coincides with the newly established UNESCO Slave Routes Project
