After the Confederacy falls, newly freed slave Rutherford Calhoun is eager to avoid marrying a prim schoolteacher and boards the first ship he finds moored at a New Orleans port. Unbeknownst to Calhoun, the vessel is a slave ship enroute to Africa. On the return trip, Calhoun is put to work as a cabin boy and quickly assists the newly captured slaves in revolting against the drunken crew. This compelling adventure is filled with a perfect blend of colorful narrative, historical romance and suspense.

    " Ostensibly a novel about the slave trade, but really an exciting sea story with philosophical undertones. As usual, Johnson's writing style manages to be acerbic and witty while exploring some of the darker sides of human nature. It certainly deserved the national book award in 1990. "

    " One of the most captivating voices I've read in awhile. "

    " Thought this would be historical fiction about the slave trade. NOT! I'm still not sure where the author was going with this one. I closed the book and had no idea what I had just read. "

    " A scary historical fiction about the reality of slavery and the slave trade. "
