Synopsis

Amazing Adventures of Equiano by Jean-Jacques Vayssieres

The story of Equiano is arguably the best known slave narrative ever published. Originally published in 1789 as The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano, or Gustavus Vassa the African, Written by Himself , this fascinating account is rewritten for young readers. The Amazing Adventures of Equiano traces the journey of a young African boy of the Ibo 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 which bring to life various scenes of Equiano's life, especially his love for the sea, the gateway to his incredible adventures.
