'January 7, 1811, Orleans County, Louisiana, United States of America'
'The man ran as fast as the swampy terrain, the foggy night and his laboring breath would allow.'
'Simon: bonded slave; descendant of Haitian Kings and a sharp intelligent young mind was on the run from his Plantation manager’s grown son. When he met the strange black-skinned warrior from Australia that fateful night, everything he thought he knew about his own life: life in general, and the world around, suddenly altered.'
'That incredible night, the Fethafoot Nhompo dispersed the power of fear that he’d lived under all of his life – and along with his timely appearance he brought the first scent of hope that Simon had ever known.'
