Summary
Lost in the underworld of 1830s New Orleans, Rutherford Calhoun, a newly freed slave and irrepressible rogue, is desperate to escape the city's unscrupulous bill collectors and the pawing hands of a schoolteacher hell-bent on marrying him. Rutherford jumps aboard the first boat leaving New Orleans, the Republic, a slave ship en route to collect members of a legenday African tribe, the Allmuseri. Thus begins a voyage of metaphysical horror and human atrocity, a journey that challenges our notions of freedom, fate , and how we live together. -back cover
