"An archetypal American story of self-discovery, set against the turmoil of post - Civil War America, Sweet Song tells the story of the mixed race son of a white landowner and a black house servant. Leon, raised black but an outcast from both cultures, finds himself suddenly on his own - and passing for white. Wrestling with a divided heritage in a world where honesty, even with friends, might prove fatal, he falls in with dispossessed thieves, mill workers, saloon keepers, musicians, businessmen, thugs, freedom loving idealists and malevolent racists - a vivid panorama from America's past. This tender, raw, provocative novel speaks from the heart about where we've come from and who we are."-- Provided by publisher.
