An account of the life of the slave at the Cape in the days of the Dutch East India Company.Here we learn of the trade in human flesh,of hair-raising mutinies on board the slave ships and of stirring encounters with pirates.The author omits no aspects of the daily life of the slaves,of their adventures in desertion,their customs in mating,their naive and strange superstitions,their pleasures and pastimes,how they gambled at dice or cock-fighting,and danced and feasted on bright moonlight nights.
