'The Slave Route is the third book in Harry Holcroft's trilogy, The Silk Route and The Spice Route being the first two. Having travelled the Silk and Spice Routes it was a natural progression to finish with the Slave Route.
Slavery was, and still is, world wide. It has been central to human existence and still influences our lives today. Holcroft takes you on a journey through Africa, the Caribbean, Central and South Americas, following the Atlantic Slave Trade. Extracts from his diaries, combined with over one hundred paintings and sketches, inform, amuse and provoke. This book gives a sense of being there, exploring and experiencing the artist in his travels.'
