Opposing threads weave together in this rich collection of short stories by William Orem: Vodou and Catholicism, missionary zeal and Vodou beliefs, faith and the misuse of faith, the hopelessness and courage of the poor, Black natives and White outsiders. The background is Haiti, beautiful and unnerving. Underneath the lush poetic description of the island lies a terror that breaks out in the unpredictability of social and political unrest. Orem's characters -- Haitians, foreign journalists, nurses, aide workers, priests and missionaries -- attempt to keep their souls intact in the face of extreme cruelty and chaos. Orem has written a powerful and unforgettable portrait of "Ayiti" in the times before the overthrow of Duvalier. Book jacket.
