This is a book I always had in the back of my mind about the bravery of unsung heroes of the first black independent country in the Western Hemisphere-Haiti. One of these heroes is now appearing!

Yes we gave this book a very favorable review earlier in the year: http://aalbc.com/reviews/black-count.html   "Napoleon also made sure to have Dumas erased from the history books, a disservice belatedly undone thanks to the efforts of Tom Reiss, author of The Black Count. Reiss devoted a half-dozen years to painstaking research to the project, unearthing a cornucopia of astonishing information from dusty archives en route to penning a revealing and compelling page-turner about an unsung icon that time somehow forgot."
