Book Description

A young Jamaican, Luke, befriends an ancient storytelling sea turtle, Odysseus. Together they travel through Caribbean time, righting wrongs and saving lives -- the pirate, Henry Morgan, for one; and Cyparis, the only survivor of the Pelee volcano that killed 28,000 people in Martinique in 1902, to name another. The novel is full of spiders that are men and lizards that are gods. All mixed together in a pepperpot stew of fantastic spice that blends fiery history with delectable fantasy. About the authorGerald Hausman has written more than 70 published books including such Jamaican titles as Duppy Talk, Doctor Bird, The Jacob Ladder, The Boy From Nine Miles: The Early Life of Bob Marley and Three Little Birds.
