Strange New Land explores the history of slavery and the black struggle for freedom before the U.S. became a nation.

It focuses on how Africans survived the process and how they shaped the contours of American racial slavery.

Editorial Reviews

"While his selection of facts and figures is illuminating throughout, what makes the work a particular pleasure are Wood''s inspired discussions; he ably links facts and puts them into larger contexts for readers. An obscure chapter in American history, rendered vividly."--Kirkus Reviews
