Waterstones Says

Illuminating the heroic true story of Queen Nanny, eighteenth century freedom fighter and leader of the Jamaican Maroons who waged war against the British colonists, Johnson's pacey and involving retelling makes for exciting, inspiring reading for children.

Shortlisted for the Jhalak Children’s & Young Adult Prize 2021

1720. Blue Mountains, windward Jamaica.

In the sweltering heat Captain Shettlewood leads a troop of British soldiers through the thick trees towards the river. They are hunting slaves who have escaped from the brutal plantations. Their mission: to find them, and kill them. But up ahead, hidden among the rocks above the water, a group of men with cutlasses and muskets wait patiently for the instructions of their leader.

Queen Nanny is a 'wise woman' with a reputation for ancient obeah magic, and a guerilla fighter with a genius for organisation.

So the battle for Jamaica begins, the First Maroon War, in which the maroons - escaped slaves - will make a final, do-or-die stand against the slavers and soldiers of Empire.
