Description

The Other Slavery by Andrés Reséndez was the gold medal winner in nonfiction in The Commonwealth Club’s 2017 California Book Awards. Since the time of Columbus, Indian slavery was illegal in much of the American continent. Yet, as Reséndez describes in his The Other Slavery, it was practiced for centuries as an open secret. There was no abolitionist movement to protect the tens of thousands of natives who were kidnapped and enslaved by the conquistadors. Reséndez builds the incisive case that it was mass slavery—more than epidemics—that decimated Indian populations across North America. Through riveting new evidence, including testimonies of courageous priests, rapacious merchants and Indian captives, The Other Slavery reveals nothing less than a key missing piece of American history.
