Bolo, the main character, is a champion stickfighter, tall, good-looking, the fastest and the strongest and the bravest of all the young men in Bonasse. When, time and again, he sees his people humiliated by change and American troops his instincts as a leader come to the fore. But the stand he makes takes on bizarre and tragic forms.

Earl Lovelace writes about the survival of a small community of Spiritual Baptists with a lyricism and understanding of dialogue which has established an international reputation.

Study Notes have been prepared by Ken Jaikaransingh, a teacher from Trinidad with many years experience of teaching English.
