He went to the pasture and sat on the rail, trying to find some place to control his rage. As the fog was forming in the fields, Bert watched as the soft orange glow of the sun rays gave notice that a new day was dawning. This was a day that Bert would not welcome. He climbed down off the rail and slowly walked to the barn, then to the creek, carrying a rope in his hands. He got into his dingy and rowed out to an old cypress tree stump that had a decaying limb that protruded about six feet beyond the base of the stump. He stood up, threw the rope over the limb, placed the rope around his neck, and kicked the dingy from under his feet. He hung there, his feet barely touching the surface of the water. Dark and uncomfortable. Messy and mysterious. The shadows of the cypress trees in a Louisana swamp can breathe all of those things. But then again so can family. In Swamp Town, author James Daniels takes us back to the early thirties, when the races were separate, not equal, and lines were never crossed. Families coexisted in a peaceful world until that imaginary bar is broken. What happens next will shock you and ultimately show that family secrets don't discriminate.
