The Last Witness From A Dirt Road 

  Request this author
Twelve year old Billy, the son of the overseer of a sugar plantation in 1946, witnesses the social and economic forms of segregation and oppression. At the heart of this coming of age novel, lies the sense that a world Billy once considered safe is in fact, dark and dangerous, powered by the persistent evils of racial inequality and supression. Characters are wondrously described with a masterful stroke of dialest as existed in the plantation country of Louisiana. A story about family, relationships and community: tragedies, and it message is timeless and universal.
