Summary:
"Goodenough and his friend Palmer, all American slave dealers, visit Bake tribe in search of recruits for their home plantations. Chief Eko, leader of the Bako people, falls prey to their clever strategies by offering his sons and daughters to them in exchange for tobacco, clothes, guns and other luxuries. In his interactions with the white men he finds them kind and generous. When he learns that these very white men have slaughtered and thrown away many boys and girls into the sea, he collapses and regrets his lack of foresight." --Back cover.
