'A Respectable Trade' Bristol, England in 1787.
"The great roar & sweep of history is successfully braided into an intimate daily detail of this compelling & inteligent book" Penny Perrick, The Times.
"Beautiful, painfull, devasting, heart rending..." Peter Fryer.
My Poole family lived in Bristol in the early 1800s - I do so hope George was not transporting slaves. He died on Santa Domingo, West Indies in 1870.
Did I find the book interesting? Yes, I agree with the reviewers. The maps behind the book help me trace where the family lived.
