Cane Warriors

Alex Wheatle

Moa is fourteen. The only life he has ever known is toiling on the Frontier sugarcane plantation for endless hot days, fearing the vicious whips of the overseers. Then one night he learns of an uprising, led by the charismatic Tacky. Moa is to be a cane warrior, and fight for the freedom of all the enslaved people in the nearby plantations. But before they can escape, Moa and his friend Keverton, a CEP character, must face their first great task: to kill their overseer, Misser Donaldson. Based on the historical Tacky’s War in Jamaica, 1760.
