Synopsis:
On the banks of the Mississippi, at Geburah Plantation in 1861, eight survivors of the notorious Island 37 Gang, a group of outlaws hunted by both the Union and Confederacy for dealing in stolen slaves, awaits their fate at the hands of a mysterious and charismatic leader, the Redeemer, or the Pinkerton detectives pursuing them. Reprint.

Review:
"A plot to resell escaped slaves and the wisdom of the kabala are ingeniously linked....Wray is the real thing, and CANAAN'S TONGUE is itself a masterpiece."

Kirkus, 04/15/2005

Review:
"...Wray does justice to some incredibly rich and challenging material, forging a style that is as loose and wild as its subjects. Steeped in effective 19th-century archaism, yet steely in sustaining the story, the prose is as poetic as it is violent."

Publishers Weekly, 05/23/2005
