White Cargo is the forgotten story of the thousands of Britons who lived and died in bondage in Britain’s American colonies. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, more than 300,000 white people were shipped to America as slaves. Urchins were swept up from London’s streets to labor in the tobacco fields, where life expectancy was no more than two years. Brothels were raided to provide “breeders” for Virginia. Hopeful migrants were duped into signing as indentured servants, unaware they would become personal property who could be bought, sold, and even gambled away. Transported convicts were paraded for sale like livestock. Drawing on letters crying for help, diaries, and court and government archives, Don Jordan and Michael Walsh demonstrate that the brutalities usually associated with black slavery alone were perpetrated on whites throughout British rule. The trade ended with American independence, but the British still tried to sell convicts in their former colonies, which prompted one of the most audacious plots in Anglo-American history. This is a saga of exploration and cruelty spanning 170 years that has been submerged under the overwhelming memory of black slavery. White Cargo brings the brutal, uncomfortable story to the surface.

This charming account of life, circa 1956, in a remote mining town in central Colorado, depicts a vivid sense of the intensity of a child’s world - its passions, fears, anxieties, joys and pleasures. Contrasted with the ambience of family life in all its detail and devotion are sharp, but often wry, scenes where the young protagonist strains against the restrictions and prohibitions that are a natural part of growing up and the testing of which in large part measures that growth. The storyline is interwoven with historical vignettes regarding the molybdenum mining industry during it’s heyday, and the foundation and maintenance of the town of Climax at 11,300 feet - a unique community and an important part of Colorado history.
