Liberty Dendron

Author Liberty Dendronabout this book: The expansion of slavery in the first eight decades after American independence drove the evolution and modernization of the United States. In the span of a single lifetime, the South grew from a narrow strip of worn-out tobacco plantations to a cotton empire, and the United States grew into a modern, industrial, capitalist economy. Until the Civil War, the most important American economic innovations were ways to make slavery ever more profitable. Through forced migration and torture, slave owners extracted continual increases in efficiency from enslaved African Americans. The United States controlled of the world market form cotton, the key raw material of the Industrial Revolution, became a wealthy nation with global influence.

Human Cattle is a powerful saga of three generations of slave women. Set in 1857 by Liberty Dendron, Human Cattle digs deep to bring the story of slavery in the South full circle—from concealment to recovery. A powerful masterwork of passion and scholarship. A stunning literary achievement that brilliantly illuminates one of the most extraordinary events in the long, dark history of slavery in America.

Be very sure you want to know what you are about to read, you will never forget what you are about to read.

Human Cattle forces readers to reckon with the violence at the root of American white supremacy, but also with the survival and resistance that brought about slavery; it also created a culture that conflicted with America's deepest dreams of freedom.
