Observations Upon the State of Negro Slavery in the Island of Santa Cruz 1829
Edited by Arnold R. Highfield

The edited work of one Leutenant Brady of the British Royal Navy is compiled in this book detailing the terrible conditions of slavery about the year 1827, near the end of the slaving era on St. Croix. His interest in detailing what he saw adds his writings to those of other earlier observers of the phenomenon. He wrote about every aspect concerning slaves that he could observe from government and the layout of the island's plantation system, to the slaves' own homes, food, religion, marriage, deaths, circumstances of work, crime, obeah, punishments and the like. This work is presented in book form with an introduction by the Editor.
