    This book was interesting on many levels. A good review of South Carolina history. Interesting story that progresses well (story drags a little in the history reviews). Great example of family history and the impact it might have on present day individuals. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in South Carolina history or / and genealogy.

    Edward Ball has a great talent as a writer. This book keeps the readers' interest in the lives of those of whom he writes. I found it fascinating that, thanks to his family's extensive family records, he was able to trace so many slaves back to Africa. He also does a superb job summarizing the history and times of those in his book. Particularly interesting was the journey he took to Africa in his search to complete his story.
