Set against the backdrop of the American Revolution and its aftermath, Rough Crossings is the gripping and bitterly tragic tale of the slaves’ struggle for freedom. Schama follows the terrifying ordeal of the escaped slaves into the fires of the war, and then into inhospitable Nova Scotia where they were betrayed by the British Crown they had just fought for.Masterfully evoked and incredibly moving, this impassioned book sheds necessary light on a dark corner of Canadian and British history.
