The Land We Leave Behind... a book embedded in some fiction, is the true story of a man's conviction that his civilization having been decimated by the effects of the slave trade is now being threatened again. This time it's not only from the moral authority of a radical Roman Catholic priest, but from the conflicting views of his own son's dithering with the very basic tenets of an upbringing he grew up embracing. Torn between his new found love in the woman he met in America, and his father's dream of him being the beholder and guardian of what remains of their civilization, he threads carefully into the unsettling embrace of the father's closest confidante - his own mother - in order to entreat himself into something that resonates with his passion, while still honoring the dictates of the time. The son's journey will take him from the grass fields of Tchou and the urban sophistication of North America, to the Jungles of the Amazon, where he will make a stunning discovery of epic proportions. Using the science of onomatology he discovers that Brazil's leading scientist, who is also likely to be one of two brothers boarded onto a slave ship for the New World, is actually from a small kingdom in the tropical rainforest of Cameroon. There is another twist in this saga, because a slave that successfully staged the first ever nonviolent escape from the Southern cotton fields of North America, and adopted the name David, as a free man, may indeed be of the same lineal descent with the scientist in the Amazon. This book, also extrapolates the biblical significance of the mythos of the Trinity; and how it was used by the slaves to escape into freedom's reach. Please take the copy you are holding with you; fleece through, to immerse yourself into the sating wrinkles of this timeless chronicle.
