It is no exaggeration to say that the Hankey, one small British ship that circled the Atlantic Ocean in 1792 and 1793, transformed Atlantic World history. This book tells the story of the Hankey, from its altruistic beginnings to its disastrous end, and describes the ship's impact upon people from West Africa to Philadelphia, Haiti to London.
