Prepare yourself to confront the political and moral compromises that got us where we are today. You won't find a better guide." --The Philadelphia Inquirer"Argall may bring us closer to the truth of America's first interracial romance than a thousand biographies written on the subject." —San Francisco Chronicle"Readers are likely to come away from this story...appreciating the mordant resonance with writers from Defoe to Conrad." —The Washington Post
