The Lion's Teeth

 
9780692427705: The Lion's Teeth

In the winter of 1811, hundreds of slaves from plantations near New Orleans rose up in a desperate but futile attempt to win their freedom. Best-selling author Gretchen Craig presents an unconventional novel based on the events surrounding what became America's largest slave revolt. The Lion's Teeth takes what we know about the leaders of the revolt and breathes life into them as fully imagined characters. While there is a love story, no account of the tragic history of slave revolts can end in happily-ever-after. Instead, in the struggle to cast off their shackles, these Americans found glory, redemption, and even peace. Charles Deslondes is the enigmatic leader of the rebellion. He is a trusted, mixed-blood slave driver who has convinced both his owner and his fellow slaves that he is the white man’s creature. Though he has only now discovered the joy of love, Charles is a man of determination and purpose. He will give the signal to begin the revolt even as he prays for a little more time before that day arrives. Kook and Quamana were African warriors before they were captured in battle and sold to the American slavers. Bearing their ritual tribal scarring with pride, they mask the ferocity in their hearts. Kook plays a happy-go-lucky role, but Quamana barely contains his rage to present himself as a compliant if sullen slave. Both of these men use their charisma and battle skills to recruit and train and inspire the young men who will sacrifice their lives in the coming struggle.

About the Author:

Gretchen Craig's lush, sweeping tales deliver edgy, compelling characters who test the boundaries of integrity, strength, and love. Told with sensitivity, the novels realistically portray the raw suffering of people in times of great upheaval. Having lived in diverse climates and terrains, Gretchen infuses her novels with a strong sense of place. The best selling PLANTATION SERIES brings to the reader the smell of Louisiana's bayous and of New Orleans' gumbo. CRIMSON SKY evokes the lives of people living under a searing sun among the stark beauty of mesas and canyons. THEENA'S LANDING summons the sweltering humidity of the Florida Everglades, the flash of scarlet ibis, and the terror of being stranded in a hurricane. TANSY, a novel of early Louisiana, tells the story of a free woman of color who is born into the system of plaçage in New Orleans. She is destined to become a rich white Creole planter's mistress, but she learns that she can shape her own destiny into something far richer and more fulfilling. For lovers of the short story, COLOR OF THE ROSE is an award winning collection exploring the characters and issues that comprise ALWAYS AND FOREVER. BAYOU STORIES is a dark look at troubled souls looking for solace in the lonely bayous of Louisiana. Visit her Amazon Author Page at
