More About Twice a Slave by Randy Willis
 
 
 
Overview
The first in a series of three novels in the Bar D-K Trilogy from master storyteller, Randy Willis...a novel about adventure, family, faith and the character of a man that touched generations. The son of a white man and Cherokee slave, Joseph Willis, gains his freedom and swims the mighty Mississippi on a mule. *Joseph Willis's life is a story of triumph over tragedy and victory over adversity *He was born into slavery. His mother was Cherokee and his father a wealthy English plantation owner. *His family took him to court to deprive him of his inheritance (which would have made him the wealthiest plantation owner in all of Bladen County, North Carolina in 1776). *He fought as a Patriot in the Revolutionary War under the most colorful of all the American generals, Francis Marion, The Swamp Fox. *His first wife died in childbirth, and his second wife died only six years later, leaving him with five small children. *He crossed the mighty Mississippi River at Natchez at the peril of his own life, riding a mule *He entered hostile Spanish-controlled Louisiana Territory, when the dreaded Code Noir (Black Code) was in effect. It forbade any Protestant ministers who came into the territory from preaching. *His life was threatened because of the message he brought to Spanish-controlled Louisiana *His own denomination refused to ordain him because of his race. *Joseph Willis preached the first Gospel sermon by an Evangelical west of the Mississippi River. *After overcoming insurmountable obstacles, he blazed a trail for others for another half-century that changed American history. *His accomplishments are still felt today. *** www.ThreeWindsBlowing.com
