This is a story of a long search for an enigmatic ancestor, which leads the author on a spiritual, mystical journey through time and achingly familiar landscapes. Along the way appear personalities and characters from both the physical and spiritual worlds, who serve as guides and teachers.
On this geneaological adventure, the author encounters a close relative, a man of another race, and together they set out to find mutual ancestors that link them to the black slaves of a Tory pastor, to a Narragansett tribal leader, to the elusive son of a prominent white family, and to an endearing mixed-race grandmother who played a role in bringing them together.
This is a story of self-discovery, a story of ancestry, place, and race.
This is an American story in red, white, and black.
