The long awaited first novel of John Hatch's "New Africa Chronicles". MISSISSIPPI SWAMP is the beginning about how a wilderness camp became a black farming community called New Africa in the 1900's. The next volume will be available in the Fall of 2002.From the Author:
This book taught me why Reconstruction failed, something that had troubled me since a youth. Our people were like all others. A taste of integration made us eager to succeed in an exploitative system. The few success stories mouthed the dangers of destroying the labor market if swamp land were to be distributed to ex-slaves, just like the ex-plantation owners and Northern carpetbaggers.
