It's a story of how over one million East Indians were secretly enslaved by those in high places in Britain and shipped to the farthest ends of the British empire to save their sugar plantations from ruination.Persaud recalls events that his grandfather, Sadhoo, related to him of his life in India, his passage abord a rickety ship named Malabar from Calcutta, India to British Guiana in 1870. He tells of the hazardous journey that took over 90 days to complete and howt he "coolies" upn arrival at their destination in British Guiana discover that they were to be indentured for terme of five years.Those who are descendants of these unfortunate people can identify with Sadhoo about the experiences of their own families. Others needing to learn of a different culture will find pleasure in reading this story.
