BLACK-WATER PEOPLE

This novel is a fictionalized account of the struggles of my mother’s family, the Allicocks, whose ancestor, the white Scottish owner of Plantation Noit Gedacht, had 8 children with Ann Mansfield, a colored woman.  The story explores the history of Linden (McKenzie/Mackenzie) and its place in the development of Guyana, including the conflict between the Allicocks and the Demerara Bauxite Company which acquired much of their ancestral land supposedly by false pretenses.
