Summary, etc.:
"Off the coast of Georgia, a small close-knit community of African Americans traces their lineage to enslaved West Africans. Living on a barrier island in almost total isolation, the people of Sapelo have been able to do what most others could not; they have preserved many of the folkways of their forebears in West Africa, believing in "signs and spirits and all kinds of magic." -- Jacket.
