A sweeping and powerful novel, 'Snake Walkers' illuminates racism's dark past, and one young man's triumph over it. The protagonist, Anthony, is such a genuine presence, that i felt physically ill when I read of the attrocities he witnessed in the woods. His struggles and eventual triumph over his demons are treated with grace and dignity, so that I felt humbled and uplifted as I turned the final page. I am in awe of the fact that this is J. Everett Dewitt's first novel. The thing that sets this book apart from many other detailed accounts of the horrors of racism is its ability to paint the lives of the characters in such a realistic light, and it is their humanity that makes the reader love them. A purchase of this book is money well spent!
