Mississippi Champagne (Paperback)
In the 1900's, North Carolina's Geechee River region serves as a melting pot for Blacks, Whites, Indians and Jews. Former Buffalo Soldier, Willie Moses Sandwinder, hopes the uncharted territory will provide him a personal homestead. Somewhere in the heart of the beautiful yet treacherous wilderness, Willie stumbles upon BJ, a man who has been mauled by a bear, and loosley clinging to life. Their encounter sets Willie on a path to fight to the death for his Cherokee wife, Aponi, start a family, and establish a thriving moonshine business. As a Black man, his white competitors feel entitled to his 'Mississippi Champagne' recipe - and they're willing to take it by any means necessary. Tragedy strikes, blood is shed and families are torn apart. Willie falls into a coma, with his life and business hanging in the balance. His family, his community and his Native American in-laws band together to make things right. Revenge is served, but will it be enough to save Willie's life and the legacy of his 'Mississippi Champagne'?
