Summary
Following the trail left by an unfinished quilt, May examines slavery from the cotton fields of the South to the textile mills of New England-- and the humanity behind it. In piecing together the story of Minerva, Eliza, Jane, and Juba-- the enslaved women behind a quilt made of 1830s-era fabric-- and their owner, Susan Crouch, May reveals the lives of these urban enslaved women and their world. -- adapted from jacket
