[light shelfwear, bottom front corner bumped, light spotting on top edge; jacket shows a little edge and surface wear, a couple of tiny closed tears, triangular pull-tear (closed) in rear panel]. SIGNED by the author on the ffep. "An unusual, gripping novel written in a realistic style. It begins with a flashback to tribal Africa from the protagonist's childhood on a plantation in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The novel's central conflict stems from the unorthodox rules of the tribe's witch doctors, charmers, and elders. The story also reveals how a highly cultured society crumbled."
