Abstract

No matter what they called, I never answered. As fast as they established plantations and brought millions like me across the sea, in chains, to these lands, the dread of mutilation, starvation, transportation, or whip, counted less than the fear of life under duress in the Americas. (Senior, 'Gardening on the Run', Gardening in the Tropics 105)
