Publisher's Summary

High Cotton chronicles the life of a 12-year-old boy, his kidnapping, and being sold into slavery. He suffered torture and abuse and witnessed horrible events prior to and during his journey via slave trader ship to America.
He was auctioned to a plantation and eventually emancipated. He returns to the sea aboard the same ship he arrived on and remains until the death of the ship's captain.
Left a substantial amount of money by the captain, only to be conned by a carpetbagger, he loses everything and ends up a beggar on the streets of St. Louis. A very talented entertainer, even though a black man in a society of white aristocracy, he gains popularity and becomes an owner of a night club and faces adversity on every hand.
