This must read, real life story is filled with hope and heroism, giving an account of Jamaican and British history that leaves a powerful imprint in your heart and mind. Based on the gripping true story of the 1760 Jamaican slave uprising, it centres on the teenage Moa and the challenging decisions he must make as a ‘cane warrior’ fighting for freedom from the plantations.
Moa is fourteen. The only life he has ever known is toiling on the Frontier sugar cane plantation for endless hot days, fearing the vicious whips of the overseers. Then one night he learns of an uprising, led by the charismatic Tacky.
Moa is to be a cane warrior, and fight for the freedom of all the enslaved people in the nearby plantations. But before they can escape, Moa and his friend Keverton must face their first great task: to kill their overseer, Misser Donaldson. Time is ticking, and the day of the uprising approaches
