An uplifting tale, set in the era of the slave trade and European colonisation, of one man s spiritual journey from black Africa , through the middle passage , to his Christian conversion and life in England Even though he has been sold to master after master, travelled here, there and everywhere, and having suffered a family tragedy, Gronniosaw s ability to keep strong to his faith is truly inspirational It s an extremely short and snappy text but well worth a read.

This is a great autobiography and Christian testimony The beginning of the narrative is similar to Pilgrim s Progress.
