Book cover
Masters of the Dew
Jacques Roumain, trans. Langston Hughes & Mercer Cook
Book details:
This classic Haitian novel tells of the traditional rural life and people of Haiti, dominated by the natural world. This is a deeply powerful story of the harsh existence of peasant farmers struggling in a world both beautiful and unforgiving.

The tale begins with the return of Manuel, a prodigal son, to his aging parents'homestead and the realities of subsistence agriculture in a drought-stricken region. He brings new ideas, with the power to transform the lives of people in the community. He encounters old feuds and resistance to change but he persists, and his determination to bring people together to improve their lives leads to a dramatic conclusion in this story of redemption.
