In this text, meticulous historic research quantifying 1,279 narratives is overlaid with testimony from slaves. In doing so, historical data is brought to life in the words of the people who were there. A comparative study of medical care, slave quarters, and slave punishment on plantations in Texas and South Carolina, the text is at times exhausting, heartbreaking and even poetic.
