the richest man in Louisiana. Owner of Harrow, a sugar plantation 15 miles
north of New Orleans, Louisiana.
The aristocratic Creole families Arceneux and Le Blanc, who
owned plantations and town homes in New Orleans.
The slaves, Inch and his mother Caleen.
Story takes place 1825 through all the pre-war years until 1861 when Civil War
begins. Ends in 1865 after the war's end.
The foreword gives the impression of impending doom, which overshadows
the whole book. Starts out with a ruined Harrow plantation, deserted for 80 years,
