"Williams's narrative contributes a distinctive dimension to our understanding of the development of 'Black Atlantic' writing. His is a rare account of a slave's transition to freedom under the conditions of the British emancipation program in Jamaica. The rich historical and social texture provided by Paton enhances this striking narrative's import."-William L. Andrews, coeditor of The Civitas Anthology of African American Slave Narratives "This is simply a fabulous compilation of materials. Paton carefully addresses an impressive range of historical and literary contexts that allow the contemporary reader to fully appreciate the importance of Williams's narrative."-Sandra Gunning, author of Race, Rape, and Lynching: The Red Record of American Literature, 1890-1912
