Summary
After running away from home, Angel Woolsack settles on the rough frontier of West Florida where he is swept up in a plot by would-be revolutionaries plot to break away from the young United States and create a new country under the leadership of Aaron Burr
Summary
The son of an itinerant preacher, Angel Woolsack is just a boy in 1799 when his father embarks on a mission to save the sinners of the Louisiana Territory. Under the influence of his adoptive brother, Samuel Kemper, Angel commits murder and flees to Natchez, Mississippi, where the two bible-brandishing bandits rob merchants while spreading the gospel. A fateful encounter with a young prostitute, Red Kate, changes the trajectory of Angel's life -- though not necessarily for the better. All end up in lawless West Florida, embroiled in events that will change history. Bleak, violent, and richly detailed, The Blood of Heaven is a sprawling story of life on the American frontier. - Description by Gillian Speace
