Five resurrected beingsaDru, Caitlan, Fong, Granny and Quenchaunited against an aberrant custom long thought extinct. They will discover that power is no panacea, nor is it a deterrent to the bigotry peculiar to that particular institution. This collection is the story of their struggle. The Emancipation Posse deals not in a hypothetical future but the here and now. In a land without hope they wrestle with alternatives to the endless cycle of civil conflict, and how best to prepare the children of war for the peace they will have to build. The American slave trade also takes a few well-deserved knocks through the eyes of its staunch opponent, John Quincy Adams, and its reluctant political advocate John Tyler, President and Confederate.
