    Although by the 1760s an Anglican minister and the author of Amazing Grace, John Newton was in earlier life a somewhat errant seaman, Navy deserter, slave trader and for a time a slave himself in Africa. Compiling two separate collections of his writings, this volume reproduces Newton's own reports on his remarkable experiences and represents one of the few first-hand accounts of a seaman involved in the infamous Atlantic slave trade.
