Pen's book is more correctly on the Slave Trade in Kentucky. Pen really busted one of Kentucky's biggest myth's for me. The myth is that slavery was better in Kentucky that it was further south. Of course any slavery is bad, but in Kentucky it was actually worse in my opinion. Kentucky was known for breeding slaves and selling them elsewhere. To me the idea of being seperated from parents at a very young age is not a pleasant thought. Pen's book will be very interesting reading.
