Riassunto: Think of yourself as a time traveler, a visitor who has just gone back to a Virginia plantation in 1859 at Christmastime. The Big House is awash with light and color. Elegance and beauty dazzle your eyes at every turn. There's plenty of food and warm hospitality. But, the people seem uneasy. Listen to their conversations. They're talking about John Brown's raid on Harpers Ferry, slave insurrections, secession, and possible war! Now, take a walk to the slave Quarters. There is no grandeur here. The wretchedness is staggering. People live in cramped one-room cabins with dirt floors. Yet, there's a celebration going on - eating, singing, and dancing. Does this mean the slaves are happy and contented? No. Listen carefully to their songs and stories. They are mostly of the hope that freedom is coming soon! The events and customs we describe in the book are historically accurate. The conversations and dialogue are real; so is the setting. However, everything we use could not and would not have happened on one plantation. For this reason, we recreated a 'Big House' and 'Quarters' based on real people, events, and places located in Virginia, 1850. Why Virginia? Because, the Jamestown Colony is where the first American Christmas was observed, and where many of our present holiday traditions began. Remember while you're reading that this is more than a seasonal account. It is the story of a region and its people on the eve of a war. When that war ended, the great plantations were never the same (taken from the author's note).
