SONG OF JAMAICA Sammy plant piece a corn down a gully, An it bear til it kill poor Sammy. Sammy dead, Sammy dead, Sammy dead oh, Sammy dead, Sammy dead, Sammy dead oh, Ah nuh tief Sammy tief mek dem kill him, Ah nuh tief Sammy tief mek dem killMoreSONG OF JAMAICA Sammy plant piece a corn down a gully, An it bear til it kill poor Sammy. Sammy dead, Sammy dead, Sammy dead oh, Sammy dead, Sammy dead, Sammy dead oh, Ah nuh tief Sammy tief mek dem kill him, Ah nuh tief Sammy tief mek dem kill him, But ah grudgeful naygar grudgeful mek dem kill him, But ah grudgeful naygar grudgeful mek dem kill him, Ah who she Sammy dead?

him nuh dead oh! Using the theme of this old Jamaican song, the author traces the life and times of the Gordon family of Manchester. Septimus fathers seven, the last of which is his namesake-Septimus (Junior)-a.k.a. Sammy. Weaving as a backdrop the changing scenery of the Jamaican lifestyle and poignantly painting a picture of the Jamaica we all dreamed of, the author in this inspiring story leaves us with a sense that good will triumph over evil, as he follows the failures and successes of Septy and Sammy in their travels through Manchester, Clarendon, Kingston, Panama and the USA.

About the Author Hector Grant was born in the district of Cocoa Walk in the parish of Manchester, Jamaica, West Indies. His formative years were spent there as well as in the district of Water Lane and Palmers Cross in the parish of Clarendon. He migrated to the United States as a young man and studied in colleges and universities in Mississippi and Texas, earning academic degrees in the Social Sciences, Sociology, Divinity and History.

He has worked as Chaplin, College Instructor and Director in the General Board of Higher Education and the Ministry of the United Methodist Church in Mississippi and Texas. He presently resides in Kansas City, Missouri, where he continues his pastoral duties. Part of our commitment to publishing is to seek each year to discover new writers of fiction, who we feel have captured a part of the Jamaican spirit and history.

This new author we feel has done this in his first book. We recommend it to you for your reading pleasure. -Mike Henry-
