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. 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's; slavery also created a culture that conflicted with America's deepest dreams of freedom. Slavery helped finance the Industrial. Plantation owners, shipbuilders, and merchants connected with the slave trade accumulated vast fortunes that established banks and heavy industry in and expanded the reach of capitalism worldwide.
