A descendant of Cajun fur trappers, who migrated from Canada, the author was born and raised in the bayou country of Louisiana and developed a curiosity about the tales and folklore recounted by his relatives and neighbors, a curiosity that led to the writing of this book. Throughout his childhood, he was witness to the brutality and inequity towards blacks, brought on by a system where hate was inbred and an accepted way of life. The scars on his face and body are the affirmation of a life spent as a construction worker, professional wrestler, boxer, bouncer and private detective.
