Product description

Review

There is distressingly little black prose of consequence to be found in the English canon before the 20th century. Mary Seacole stands out as a gloriously entertaining exception, a Caribbean witness to the black experience in the Victorian age who deserves to be much better known -- Robert McCrum ― ‘The 100 best nonfiction books’, Guardian

Traveller, entrepreneur, healer and woman of colour, Mary Seacole is a singular and fascinating figure -- Jan Marsh ― Independent

Review

The first autobiography written by a British black woman.

1.0 out of 5 stars Font is too small!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 2 March 2019
As other reviewers have said, the font is too small and the book seems to have been copied and pasted off the free internet page version. The pages in the text do not correlate with the actual pages, chapters run on and do not get a new page, etc. The contents itself I have no issue with and I'd advise anyone looking to purchase the book to get the proper version to save the hassle.
