The Carolina Gold Highway
Read by Travis Leonard
A fascinating story about a slave plantation in the middle of nowhere, completely cut off from the modern world, where slavery has been practised since the American Civil War.
Avery Pine, an American college student, writes his final exam, followed by a "big blowout party". After being dumped by his online girlfriend who he is on his way to visit for the first time, he goes into a Blues bar to drown his sorrows, chats up an attractive girl, blacks-out and wakes up half-dead in a swamp. Miraculously, he finds his way out of the swamp, only to be captured by one of the slavers and forced into slavery.
A great adventure story with fascinating overtones regarding the philosophical outlook of slave owners, as well as exploring how generations of slaves remain positive in the face of extreme cruelty and deprivation. Can Avery rescue them and himself? Or will he fail?
