About this title

Synopsis:

This is the original uncut, unedited, uncensored and unabridged Denlinger's 1957 version of Mandingo, a sensational novel based on the Antebellum Period of American history before the Civil War. Not a word has been cut out. Although fictional, this book is based on established historical facts. No less an authority than President Thomas Jefferson wrote, "[A] woman who brings a child every year is more profitable than the best man. What she produces is an addition to the capital, while his labors disappear in mere consumption." The novel takes place in 1832 on Falconhurst, a fictional plantation in Alabama. This book was the first of a series of fictional works, including plays, movies and TV shows by various authors, all of which take place at Falconhurst. In the movie version, Mede, the male slave whose job it is to impregnate the female slaves, is played appropriately by Ken Norton, who was World Heavyweight Boxing Champion in 1978, defeating Muhammad Ali. In the movie version, he is ordered to fight another slave and, of course, wins.

About the Author:

Author Kyle Onstott was born January 12, 1887 in Du Quoin, Illinois. He was an American novelist, known for his best-selling novel Mandingo (1957), which deals with slavery on an Alabama plantation with the fictional name of Falconhurst in the 1830s. Onstott was originally a dog breeder and judge in regional dog shows, living in California with his widowed mother in the early 1900s. Having collaborated with his adopted son on a book about dog breeding, he decided to write a book that would make him rich. Utilizing his son's anthropology research on West Africa, he hand wrote Mandingo and his son served as editor. Denlinger's was a small Virginia publisher and released it. It became a national sensation. A sequel and a series of other novels followed, mostly written with Lance Horner. Kyle Onstott died on June 3, 1966 in San Francisco, California, USA.
