Oliver Samuels, OD, Actor & Comedian states, “Informative! The mysterious Julien Fédon and loquacious Belvidere laborers will make a dazzling theatrical production.”
“What fascinates me most about this book is: It reminds me of growing up in Morant Bay, Jamaica; I never knew Grenada had maroons too,” writes Ivy Hue.
This tantalizing book provides:
*A historical account of Julien Fédon and the Fédon’s Revolution
*A memoir of plantation life in Colonial Grenada and other Caribbean islands
*A coming-of-age story about the author
Was Julien Fédon who was never captured dead or alive influenced by the American War of Independence, the Haitian and French Revolutions? Had George Washington and Thomas Jefferson accept a plea from mulatto French-Grenadians, could the Fédon’s Rebellion be avoided? Twentieth and 21st century Grenadian leaders motivated by Julien Fédon included Prime Minister Eric Gairy who led Grenada into independence in 1974 and Prime Minister Maurice Bishop.
