About this book

This history of the 'Torrid Zone' offers a comprehensive and powerfully rich exploration of the 17th century Anglophone Atlantic world, overturning British and American historiographies and offering instead a vernacular history that skillfully negotiates diverse locations, periodizations, and the fraught waters of ethnicity and gender.

About the authors

Sarah Barber is a Senior Lecturer of History at Lancaster University, UK.

Reviews

“Sarah Barber’s examination of what was called the ‘torrid zone’ between Carolina and the sun-drenched islands near the equator brings what life was during the seventeenth century there in a way that is both concise and complete. This is a book will be a valuable addition to the libraries of researchers trying to construct a fuller picture of who those original settlers of Carolina were. … Barber’s book is a slim volume, but one packed with valuable information.” (Carolina Chronicles Magazine, June, 2016)
