One afternoon, in the backwater town of Sutton, a young black farmer by the name of Tucker Caliban matter-of-factly throws salt on his field, shoots his horse and livestock, sets fire to his house and departs the southern state. And thereafter, the entire African-American population leave with him. The reaction that follows is told across a dozen chapters, from the perspective of boys, girls, men and women all of whom are grappling with this spontaneous, collective rejection of subordination. A new edition of a classic American novel.
