About this product
- DescriptionThis researched historical vel is based on written records of De Soto's expedition, plantation life in Alabama, and the Battle of Mobile Bay. Hernando De Soto's 1539 effort to colonize North America failed and his stolen gold was never found...or was it? The story skips ahead to 1859, when the James Bennett family moves to a cotton plantation near Selma, Alabama. They treat their slaves much better than other landowners which causes them problems. The story focuses on teenager Josh Bennett and his friendship with a slave named Odell. Adventure and danger are their daily companions. Their difficulties reach a climax at the Civil War Battle of Mobile Bay. A witchcraft spell saves the day!
