In the late 1700’s, a British Slave Trading vessel leaves England with trading goods for Sierra Leone, Africa.  Also onboard is the owner of the ship, his wife and his 3 year old daughter.  The final destination of the ship is South  Carolina where the Slave Ships owner’s wife intends to visit her parents to introduce them to their grandchild.
Some years earlier, this same ship and its crew slew the chief of the Dende tribe and vengeance was sought by  the tribe.  Captured, the owner and his wife are slain but the 3 year old daughter is miraculously saved by order of a powerful elder who proclaimed the child as a descendent of a powerful  chieftain, and who when she grew of age, would a powerful Chieftain.  The child is spared and is initiated into the Tribes ways and customs. She is taught the customs and the history of the tribe, and the languages of the two leading traders  of Sierra Leone; France and England. is the origin of this text.

Just before the outbreak of the British/French war, King George III, seeking to assure England’s holdings in Africa, the now adult Chieftain is summoned to England to ensure the African Tribes allegiance.  Travelling to England the white chieftain makes a great impression on the British with her learning and understanding of the political situation.   Studying the reasons why England is so powerful in the cotton trade, an attempt is made  to carry that information back to her tribe.
Intending to use the cotton on her inherited cotton plantation in South Carolina with some of the technology of England, her ideas are judged to be sound but too early.  Her search leads to her freeing of her slaves, and instead of the cotton, finding ways to bring potable water to Africa.
