"Inheriting the Trade is like a slow-motion mash-up, a first-person view from within one of the country's founding families as it splinters, then puts itself back together again." (Edward Ball, author of Slaves in the Family)
"The author's descriptions of the places and history he discovered along the journey are powerful, and the topic is both compelling and important." (AudioFile)

A VERY important book!
This book taught me a lot more about this country's legacy....one I'm bitterly ashamed of. But it also showed me that it doesn't have to end in shame; Americans have a responsibility to KNOW what happened & take their part in repairing the damage that their forefathers' evil practices caused & are still causing. Thank you for this book, Tom!

Thomas DeWolf's personal reading lends to credibility. I've read a considerable amount of American history including black history--what makes this work stand out is the personal investment in uncovering uncomfortable realities.
