The conditions on slave ships were sickening, and many never survived to reach their destination. Thousands of men, women and children suffered heart-rending separations from their family, even their own children, parents and siblings. This was what life was like for countless people before the slave trade was abolished. But William Wilberforce fought to bring freedom and relief from the terrors of the slave trade. His exciting story shows the amazing effect his faith in Christ and his love for people had on transforming a nation. Recommended for ages 8 to 14.
