Author PJ Dunnabout this book: High Cotton is an account of the life of Manni, a 12 year old boy, kidnapped along with his brother and sold to Dutch slave traders. High Cotton is an example of the 'Maffa' also known as the African holocaust, which resulted in the murder, rape, torture, and enslavement of millions of Africans. Even though a very small example of Maffa is espoused in High Cotton, the horror is still very apparent. This chronological account follows Manni's determination to overcome the stigma of a poor black man, through his sale on the auction block, his eight years on a plantation, and return to sea aboard the same ship which brought him to America. Manni (now called Scooter) attains brief riches, only to be conned, and left destitute on the streets of St. Louis. Here he becomes a beggar and street performer, never giving up his dreams of success. Though life throws many obstacles in his path, Scooter never gives up and becomes a very successful business man.
