Synopsis

Greed, Seeds and Slavery by Stewart Ross

Commemorating the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the Slave Trade Act, this collection of eleven stories follows the lives of slaves of every kind around the world. Join African Queen Jinga as she unites the tribes of Ndongo against the invading Portuguese. Watch John Blanke as he becomes the first black trumpeter to play for the King Henry VIII. Meet Harriet Tubman as she helps escaped slaves flee along the Underground Railroad to freedom. Moving, exciting and often funny, these true stories span centuries and the globe, feature famous historical figures such as William Wilberforce and Catherine of Aragon and remind us all of the true horrors of slavery in all its forms.

About the Author

Stewart Ross

After several years teaching at a variety of institutions in Britain, the USA, the Middle East and Sri Lanka, Stewart Ross became a full-time writer eleven years ago. With over 175 published titles to his credit, in a remarkably short time he has become one of Britain’s most popular and versatile authors.

Current projects include a third adult novel, five volumes in Hodder's Survivors series of children's historical fiction, more volumes in their Stories From History for young children, several other historical stories and works of non-fiction, a Jubilee revue, and a musical with Paul Englishby (musical director of Captain Corelli's Mandolin'). A frequent lecturer, notably on the QE2, and occasional journalist and broadcaster, Stewart lives near Canterbury with his wife and four children. Each morning escapes domestic hubbub by commuting ten metres to work in a large hut in the garden.
