FROM THE PUBLISHER - In THE BEAST OF THE HAITIAN HILLS Philippe Thoby-Marcelin and Pierre Marcelin have created a tale of violence as well as charm, and the story is always strong and frequently terrifying. Morin Dutrilleul was a city man who went to the country to live. He was not superstitious, he did not believe the old legends and felt calmly superior to the peasants who did. To prove his point he cut down the tree at whose foot the sacrifices to the local gods had always been left. From that point on the story rises in a crescendo of fear; fear by the peasants of the Cigouave, the beast of the hills, fear by Morin of his growing belief in the old legends and the horrible activities of the old gods. The victim of rum and superstition, Morin does not escape the climax of violence and terror with which the book ends. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket W/A Scuff Mark At The Top Of The Spine.
