Freedom Bound, explores Scotland’s uncomfortable connections with the
history of slavery. We follow the interconnected stories of three
enslaved people seeking freedom in Scotland in the decades before the
legal case which decided that Scots Law could not tolerate slavery.
Freedom Bound is the first book of its kind and we anticipate it
becoming an invaluable teaching resource, encompassing art,
literature, history and politics, as well as a gripping historical
novel for popular release. The book aims to make this difficult
subject matter accessible for young readers without sugar-coating the
history of Scotland.
