146 pp, 9" H. B&w illustrations. In 19th century West Africa, a young princess is taken by a rival tribe "and held for a ritual in which she will be killed. Then, in 1850, on the very day set for her death, a British naval officer rescues her. She is christened Sarah Forbes Bonneta and taken to England. There she is presented to Queen Victoria, who decides to provide for the upbringing of this young, orphaned princess. (The author) discovered a body of letters concerning Sarah, and some actually written by her, in a (London book store). What he saw there fascinated him, and he set out to unearth details of her unique and engaging life. He found an extraordinary story - of royalty, of race, of class, of belonging, and of identity. Now, after years of meticulous research, Myers unveils this arresting portrait of Sarah Forbes Bonneta, African princess." Book is Fine. Dust jacket has a very tiny tear at top of front flap-fold, very minor edge wrinkling.
